Clinton Library features Haiti exhibit

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The William J. Clinton Presidential Center’s temporary exhibit, “Haiti: Building Back Better” celebrates the people and culture of Haiti as the nation recovers from the devastating earthquake one year ago today.  Open until Feb. 6, 2011, the exhibit highlights the history of Haiti, Haitian arts and culture, President Clinton’s presidential and post-presidential involvement with the country, and earthquake recovery efforts.

The multi-media exhibit begins in the center’s first floor Garden View Room where visitors walk through a brief history of Haiti.  The exhibit then transitions into a look at the country during President Clinton’s administration as well as post presidency.  The Garden View Room also features beautiful, hand-crafted Haitian art that is representative of the spirit and the strength of the Haitian people.

Throughout the exhibit, the Center offers “The Haiti: Building Back Better Tour for School Groups.”  The tour highlights President Clinton's current work and his continued support to Haiti.  Students will see the effects of the January 12, 2010, earthquake in Haiti and will learn about the resilience of the Haitian people and the economic value of art to the Haitian community.
