FRESKO: An Exhibition to Benefit Haitian Artists

Reception
Monday September 13
7:00 p.m.
Cole's Bar
2338 N. Milwaukee
FREE, Desserts provided

The exhibition, which will run at Cole's from now until October 2, consists primarily of paintings from three Haitian artists residing in the southern coastal town of Jacmel. The reception will highlight the exhibit with music provided by Chicago artists Ragged Claws & others.

Long held as an artistic epicenter in Haiti, Jacmel was broadly devastated by the January 12th earthquake. Each artist has their own story of having lost their home, family members, and their studios along with much of their work. In addition to the paintings on display, artisan crafts from one artist will be on display and portions from all drink purchases will go towards the artists as they continue to rebuild their lives in Haiti.
