In Haiti, a group of artists is making a name for themselves by creating huge metal sculptures and showing them on the streets. They call themselves Haiti’s Resistance Artists, and their work speaks to the devastation following the 2010 earthquake and the stark separation between the country’s rich and poor. Reese Erlich has their story.
REESE ERLICH, BYLINE: Off a winding, three-foot-wide dirt path next to Port-au-Prince’s main street stand dozens of huge metal sculptures. An eight-foot-tall figure with a long face seems to play an electric keyboard with hands made of coiled springs. A neighborhood child plucks a rubber band on the sculpture and pretends to sing. via : NPR
