  4. Arts in the New Normal: Works by the Han-Mee Artist Association of Greater Washington, DC

    October 15, 2021, 10:00 AM - January 23, 2022, 5:00 PM @ Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

    Arts in the New Normal showcases more than fifty works of art from Korean-American artists living and working in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Although the Covid-19 pandemic has forced many of us to change our plans and find creative ways to adapt, there is hope that society and life can return to some resemblance of life before the pandemic. Every artist has experienced this challenging time differently and we all understand that the new normal we are looking forward to may not be exactly as before. Still, we are hopeful for days when Covid-19 doesn’t dominate the news, and gathering with friends and family isn’t considered high risk behavior. The works in this exhibition reflect that hope and those contradictions of joy and loss, of fear and strength, that each artist has shared in a unique way.

  8. 2021 Speaker Series: Vodou and the Use of Caves as Sacred Space in Modern Haiti

    October 21, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum (JPPM)

    Location is the Park Pavilion - Speaker: Patrick Wilkinson, Ph.D. Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Vodou is intrinsic to both Haitian history and identity. It is practiced by an overwhelming majority of the people in the country and in the global Haitian diaspora. Due to this pervasive misunderstanding, little recognition of the nuances of the modern practice of Vodou exists. This statement resonates particularly strongly with regard to the less public locations which serve as pilgrimage sites and in which Vodou is practiced across Haiti, such as waterfalls, caves, and other difficult-to-access spaces. In this presentation, Patrick will describe in detail the performance of an initiation ceremony that occurred in a cave outside of Cap Haitien at Fort Picolet in Northern Haiti, including the introduction to the mambo in her home, the trek out to Gwòt Klemzine, entrance into the cave, and the Mèt Tèt, (Master of the Head,) ceremony itself.
