The Mead's Haitian Art Collection
As the thoughts of communities at Amherst College and across the Pioneer Valley extend to the people of Haiti following that country's devastating earthquake, the Mead Art Museum is honored to display Haitian artworks from its collection as objects of contemplation, solace, and pride. Students in the museum's volunteer docents program will speak about the Mead's Haitian art collection in a free public event on Wednesday, February 3rd, at 7:00 p.m.
The Mead holds fourteen works of Haitian art, illustrated below. Please click on an image to enlarge it and obtain additional information.
