About

The Figge Art Museum is home to one of the largest collections of Haitian art in the United States.  In 1967, Dr. Walter E. Neiswanger’s generous gift of Haitian paintings and sculptures established the collection, which has grown to include a dynamic range of artwork in a variety of mediums and styles. The collection continues to grow through strategic purchases and gifts, including the Figge’s recent acquisition N’ap naje ansamn, n’ap vole ansamn, by contemporary Haitian- American artist Didier William. Haitian Masterworks will feature significant as well as rarely exhibited works from the Haitian collection by Hector Hyppolite, Wilson Bigaud, Nacius Joseph, Georges Liautaud, Frantz Zéphirin, and Edouard Duval-Carrié, among others. Mediums including painting, beading, metalwork, and mixed media sculpture will be included. This exhibition will focus on prevalent themes in Haitian art, including spirituality, transformation, the natural world, everyday life, and Haitian history.
