The exhibit will also celebrate the release of the book, \”Migrating Colors: Haitian Art in New England.\” The art exhibition is sponsored by the City of Boston and the Migrating Colors concept is a culmination of the collaboration between the Haitian Artists Assembly of Massachusetts and its partners Brockton Arts, In Sight Art Gallery, and Afro Caribbean Gallery.
A reception and book signing is scheduled for Friday January 12 at 5 p.m. at Boston City Hall, the exact date of the Haiti earthquake of 2010, to not only commemorate this moment with friends of the community but also to show the resiliency of Haitian culture.
