Despite political, economic and natural upheavals during much of Haiti’s history, Haitians have developed a unique culture, with art and music that speaks to the expressiveness, vitality and indomitable spirit of the people of this small island nation. This exhibition highlights the stunning private collection of Carlsbad resident Lawrence Kent. Featuring more than 45 works from the 1940s to present, the Kent Collection illustrates the diverse and distinct characteristics of Haiti’s visual traditions.
