Art is everywhere in Haiti, we see it everyday on walls, on buses, on tap-taps, and yes in front of every little Haitian barbershop 'gerit' across the country but did you ever think these artworks, something no more important to a Haitian than a street sign, would be ever make it to a New York art exhibition, let alone be a topic of interest in the beauty section of Vogue magazine?

The exhibition is called "Pòtoprens: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince," it brings together the work of over 25 artists working in the Haitian capital.

The exhibition, on view September 7 to November 11, 2018, highlights Port-au-Prince's many diverse centers of cultural production, informal street life, religious heritage, and mythologies to create a compelling portrait of a historically significant and intensely complex city in flux.

Sadly, the Haitian artists highlighted in the exhibition were denied a visa to go to the United States to see their work on display.
