Exhibit: Nature as a Linking Force: Temporal and Spiritual Life in Haiti

Haitian art is a unique synthesis of different cultures, including indigenous Caribbean, African and European. In all societies, however, nature plays an important role in people’s daily lives. The newest exhibit from UCF Libraries’ Special Collections & University Archives, “Nature as a Linking Force: Temporal and Spiritual Life in Haiti,” celebrates the close bond between Haitian identity and nature. The show displays paintings of Haitian people enclosed in lush and vivid landscapes, voodoo rituals, and fantasy scenes. The exhibit was curated by UCF student and Special Collections & University Archives employee, Renata Nagy, and designed by Special Collections & University Archives book conservator, Christopher Saclolo.
The exhibit is on view on the 2nd floor of the John C. Hitt Library from Wednesday, April 4th through Thursday, May 31st.
