Virtual Meet the Artist
In celebration of Haitian Heritage Month and Caribbean-American Heritage Month, the Historical Society of Palm Beach County will have a virtual “Meet the Artist” Reception for the exhibit, Tell Me About Haiti, by Haitian artist Alexandra Barbot. Alexandra will share her inspiration for her art as well as the story behind these pieces. This event is open to the public.
The exhibit is featured in the historic courtroom on the third floor of the 1916 Historic Courthouse in downtown West Palm Beach, at the Richard and Pat Palm Beach County History Museum. The images depict the history of the island come alive through the paintings and portraits from the time of the Queen and Kings of the Tainos at the discovery of the island, to the prestigious Kingdom of Henry Christophe in the northern part of the island. Limited-edition prints are available through the artist.
