Haitian Art Arrives in Auburn, Alabama

The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art’s newest exhibition, Lespri Endonptabl : Selected Works from the Winslow Anderson Collection of Haitian Art at the Huntington Museum of Art, will be on view from Aug. 27-Oct. 29 in the Noel and Kathryn Dickinson Wadsworth Gallery and the Chi-Omega-Hargis Gallery.

“Lespri endonptabl” is Haitian Creole for “the indomitable spirit.” JCSM is pleased to present this exhibition of 32 objects produced in Haiti between 1945 and 1990, which depict themes of everyday life, landscape, flora, fauna, agriculture, folklore, and Voodoo.

The exhibition and its programs are JCSM’s contribution to Auburn University’s common book program, Auburn Connects!, which is focusing on Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World, by Tracy Kidder for the new academic year.
