Amazing

I really enjoyed this place. The artist is there himself most of the time if he is not out traveling to promote his art.

Disappointing

Probably not the best place to visit if a tourist in Haiti. To me, it seemed more oriented toward the Rezistans than the Artis.

From ghetto to gallery! Incredible contemporary art at fantastic prices!

My first visit was rather overwhelming; there are so many creations to look at that they all jumble together in picturesque disarray; an urban junk heap made beautiful is hard to read at first! If you are initially intrigued, plan to spend some time to really dig through everything. I came away with a single sculpture: a 36" wooden bust of a woman with green marble eyes mounted on a speaker cone, her shoulders wrapped with a battered aluminium shawl, a tire turban on her head, and an old high-heeled shoe atop that. She was displayed on an old oil drum and stood out from all the clutter so vividly and with such grace and dignity that I had to have her--with no thought as to how I would get her home! Another wall displayed small Voodoo spirits, cut out of old tires, 2 of which I bought for $10 each. These are small and easily transported home, where a simple black frame and a white mat will make them a fantastic modern Haitian souvenir. Thankfully, I took a lot of photos, and later on, when I had time to study them, I realised I had to go back. I bought 5 more sculptures and another small hanging piece. It's a fantastically interesting place to visit, with cats and turkeys roaming around, a clean bathroom, and non-hassling people to buy from. Several of the more known artists were not in residence; they were travelling, lecturing, and showing their work in other parts of the world. At the front there's a section of children's work too. It's a must-go if you like contemporary art, if you like seeing what people can make out of nothing, and if you're prepared to buy a roll of bubble wrap, strapping tape, and an extra duffle bag or two to bring your works home! (I'm now looking for a rusty oil drum for the bust of the woman!)
