Senior Session: Hughes Haitian Art Gift

Gallery Talk
From 1972 to 1976, when Harry Hughes was a Public Affairs Officer for the American Embassy in Haiti, he and his wife met and befriended many artists and established a collection of nearly 100 Haitian works. Now, 40 years after their arrival in Port-au-Prince, the Hughes have given their collection to the Spencer. Presented by Former SMA curatorial intern Megan Young, this is an opportunity to learn about works in this collection. This popular series of informal gallery discussions is designed for senior citizens, but open to everyone.
