Healing Power of Art
Six months ago the nation of Haiti experienced a devastating 7.0 earthquake that changed the lives of its adult and certainly its children. In the process of healing the mental and physical wounds of the disaster children had the opportunity to use art to express their feelings. The Smithsonian National Museum of African Art has collected some of their art and for its current exhibit The Healing Power of Art: Works of art by Haitian children after the earthquake. Don’t miss out on seeing these works and connecting with the spirit of the children of Haiti and more importantly, six months later don’t forget Haiti.
