Through the support of the Embassy of the United States in Haiti, the pictural exhibition of Haitian-American artist, Ulrick Jean Pierre entitled “The Ties That Bind” will be held until June 5 at the Museum of National Pantheon Haitian (MUPANAH).
As part of this exhibition that commemorates the 220 years of historical and cultural ties between Louisiana and Haiti, Ulrick Jean-Pierre, who currently resides in New Orleans, celebrates the vivid culture of his native country through his detailed paintings. The paintings were offered to the MUPANAH by the U.S. Embassy so they can be displayed around Haiti for years to come.
At the opening of the exhibition, Ambassador Pamela White declared “With these beautiful works art, we see a celebration of cultural heritage and resilience of the Haitian people and that of Louisiana. The exhibition reflects not only our relationship, but also the constant dedication of the U.S. government to work with Haiti to preserve, protect and celebrate our common cultural heritage.”
As part of the exhibit, the U.S. Embassy has brought Dr. Cécile Accilien of Columbus State University for a week to make presentations to MUPANAH visitors on the artist and his work.
