Explore the Art and Culture of Haiti with Laurie Beasley

Sunday, November 2, 2014 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

See the beauty of Haiti and meet the people with long-time Oak Park resident and art gallery owner Laurie Beasley. Beasley will share her experiences from a recent trip she made to Haiti four years after the disastrous earthquake. Beasley has traveled to Haiti more than 40 times since 1997 and has lectured and written extensively about Haitian art.

“In Haiti, you witness a remarkable convergence of African, European and indigenous Taino cultures and traditions transformed by slavery and the triumph over it,” says Beasley.
