Come welcome three teenage artist super stars from Haiti visiting the United States for the first time! Mosaic artists Fedno Lubin and Michou Joissant, joined by Haitian photographer Jepte Milfort, are part of a group of youth who started creating mosaics in Haiti with Laurel True after the devastating earthquake in 2010. They have since helped make over 25 murals in their town and gained international support for their work. Their story will fill your heart with inspiration.
There will be a conversation with the young artists, a photo exhibit, music by Rosemond Joissant - winner of Haiti’s American Idol, beautiful hand made crafts created by Haitian youth available to purchase, and light refreshments.
We'd like to send the artists home with a collage of mosaics by IMA friends to share with their community, and for inspiration. So please bring a photo of your artwork to add to the collage!
