The name says it all — Spirits and Symbols: The Art of Haiti. Rich culture blended of many influences, mostly forced upon by Europeans, has shaped the resilience of Haitian people. Religion, worship and spirituality have been the pinnacle of hope within the country and can be seen through the works on display in this exhibition.

Spirits and Symbols: The Art of Haiti presents three forms of artistry through which Haitians preserve and present their beliefs and customs. The works include genre paintings depicting every day scenes of Haitians at work or during worship; metal sculptures of Vodou spirits (deities), and fabric art called drapos (flags) that feature symbols and images of Haitian spirits as well as Catholic saints and symbols.

The Wright Museum thanks Book Beat and the Chatman family for their wonderful contributions to this exhibition.
