Happy New Year!

Forgotten Language thanks you for your gracious support last year. We would like to invite you to the opening reception of “Standing With Papa Legba” at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) on January 13, 2011. The work of Jacques Rony will be featured. Partnered with the “Le Projet Nouveau” exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) to form “Re-Imagining Haiti”, the collaborative exhibit explores the spirituality, aesthetics and re-construction of Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake.

Forgotten Language specializes in traditional Haitian metal art, metal decoupe. Oil drums are transformed into stunning, hand-hammered works of art. With your investment, you ensure the tradition of metal découpe is passed on to the next generation and can be assured that your piece of art has a direct impact on the lives of families in Haiti. Forgotten Language shares the life and beauty that lives in the tradition of metal découpe and the Haitian people.

In memory of the one year anniversary of the devastating earthquake, let us remember the hope, love and tradition of Haiti. We are looking forward to seeing you at the opening reception.

Lectures and events supplementing the “Re-Imagining Haiti” exhibit are listed below. For a complete list visit the MoCADA website.
