New Exhibition of Haitian Art Opens at UW Art Museum

Prefete Duffaut’s “Ville Imaginaire,” gifted by Richard S. Plotka, is among works in a new exhibition of paintings at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.

The University of Wyoming Art Museum continues to offer different varities of paintings to observe. A new area for Haitian paintings can be seen through Saturday, May 11, at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.

“Image and Culture: Haitian Paintings from the Art Museum Collection” presents an overview of 20th century Haitian art and explores different styles, techniques and subject matter.

Haitian art reflects the island nation’s unique history, culture, religion and people, says Rachel Miller, assistant curator.

“With vibrant colors and varied styles and techniques, the paintings included in this exhibition address topics ranging from the military and religious history of the country to more contemporary abstract works,” Miller says. “Haitian art celebrates the nation’s culture and identity, despite there being little formalization to the various movements and styles.”

“Imagine learning from the masters” is a guiding principle of the UW Art Museum’s programs. Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m-5 p.m. Monday hours are extended to 9 p.m. February through April and September through November. Admission is free.
