Haiti's Treasures: Out Of The Rubble
Haiti's Treasures: Out Of The Rubble 1 x 60'
The January 2010 earthquake in Haiti killed 300,000 people and left 1.5 million homeless. It also destroyed much of the country’s cultural heritage, including thousands of paintings and sculptures buried in the rubble of collapsed museums and art galleries. The programme follows the work of a team of art conservators sent to Haiti by the Smithsonian Institution to rescue and restore damaged artworks, among them three celebrated murals that survived the destruction of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in downtown Port-au-Prince. As the rescue work progresses, and scarred canvases are miraculously restored, the programme opens up a window on the magical and colourful world of Haitian art and culture, an aspect of Haiti often lost in the grim news headlines.
