The Artist is Not Dead

I saw a house by the road. Painted on it in Kreyol it said, "The artist is not dead." Then it gave a phone number to call if you wanted him (or her) to do some work for you.

Here's an article from January about some of the losses of the art world in the earthquake. I heard an interview with a Haitian art collector who said art was over for Haiti. But I don't think so.

The artist is not dead.

Here's an article (in French) about some of the earthquake art that is being done now. I have seen some for sale by the side of the road. Haitians are artists, and they will keep making art and beauty around them no matter what.

The artist is not dead.
