DAVENPORT, IOWA (October 21, 2021) — Join Figge educator, Kelsey Vandercoy, for an in-person talk all about Haitian art on Saturday, November 6, 3PM, at Eastern Ave (6000 Eastern Ave). The Figge Art Museum houses one of the world’s largest collections of Haitian art outside of Haiti itself. Vandercoy will give a brief presentation about the basics of Haitian art and why the Figge has so much of it, followed by a hands-on art activity related to the lesson. A series of Haitian flags from the Figge Outreach’s collection of objects will be brought to allow patrons a close-up, physical experience with the art. This program is best suited for adults.
