Signs of life

A few oil paintings for sale are placed on the rubble of a destroyed building on Jan. 25. In this country, "where every Haitian is an artist" according to Joseph Gaspard, a member of the board of directors of the College Saint Pierre museum, the loss of so much culture so quickly adds insult to injury. The vast art community is heartbroken over the loss of so many galleries and museums, according to the Los Angeles Times.
