Living Art

 "Haiti is not the disaster du jour that we see on CNN. The Haitian people live every day of their lives like a work of art. People from all walks of life are involved with art. From the bricklayer singing as he rebuilds his home, to kids dancing in a courtyard, art is embedded in their culture and is a source of light and joy. Through art can come healing and rebuilding of the spirit, not just physical structures.“
