Haitian Art – A Digital Crossroads

Planning for a database of the Haitian art collection at the Waterloo Center of the Arts (WCA) in Waterloo, Iowa, which holds more than 1,500 works of art. The project would also support planning for the creation of the Haitian Arts Collaborative, a digital interface for Haitian art collections across the globe, including the Centre d’Art in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and the Haitian Cultural Art Alliance in Miami, Florida.

This project will complete two major tasks: First, to plan the digitization of the Haitian art collection at the Waterloo Center for the Arts in Waterloo, Iowa - the largest Haitian art collection in the United States. Secondly, we will plan an interface for considering diverse collections of Haitian art. Through the creation of these two public digital venues we hope to expand the field of Haitian art history and bring awareness to collections of Haitian art.
