Art for Haiti Benefit Exhibition

I am honored to be part of the group show at Jose Vera Fine Art & Antiques titled "Art for Haiti" Benefit Exhibition located in Eagle Rock, CA.
The 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic 7.0 magnitude. 3 million people had been affected and after one year the death toll is more than 316.000 people. If it was not enough the cholera outbreak has spread to every part of the country. Haitians still need our help.
Even though my images are not from Haiti, they reflect Haitian heritage and the African influence in the Americans.
