Codman Unveils Hope for Haiti Public Art Exhibit
Hope for Haiti is a public art installation honoring Haitian culture and history created by Codman Academy students in Joan Green's studio art class. 14 colorfully painted panels inspired by Haitian art are on display outside The Great Hall on Washington Street in Codman Square. There is a ribbon of text in Haitian Creole and English. Check out the feature video on Boston Network News! BNN Video
This project was created in response to a request from The Codman Square Health Center to create a public art exhibit to honor Haiti. Students decided to focus the project on “Hope for Haiti” rather than the destruction of Port au Prince. Students interviewed Haitian neighbors, including Health Center staff and students’ families, to learn about Haitian culture. They also looked at Haitian intuitive art and borrowed stylistic elements.
