The Little Haiti Cultural Center, designed by Bernard Zyscovich Architects, is a gem of a facility, featuring a stunningly beautiful gallery. The staff, including Manager RASHA CAMEAU and Media Specialist LORRAINE RENTZ, describe the center's inception and its mission to present Haitian culture to the community, offering a range of classes in both visual and performance arts. It also serves as a presentation venue. The exhibition, GLOBAL CARIBBEAN, was curated by noted artist EDOUARD DUVAL CARRIE, whose work is widely shown and collected, but is not part of this exhibition. He gathered striking works by both emerging and well-recognized artists from the Caribbean area, with the purpose of showcasing talent that breaks stereo- types of "folk" and "tourist-oriented" art and craft. “It’s real art based on very deep historical, psychological, social, economic upheavals and move- ments that make this region quite a fascinating one,” he said. The opening during Art Basel was very well attended by an international crowd, including a number of the French cultural representatives and other sponsors of the project.
