Haiti’s Scars, and Its Soul, Find Healing on Walls - NYTimes
It is good to know that the work on the murals is continuing. The Smithsonian is working with the Episcopal Church in Haiti to preserve them. I was interested to note that, when the restoration is complete, they will likely be free standing in a sort of memorial garden; meanwhile, they are being stabilized and taken somewhere safe for the needed work. I wonder how they will protect them once they are back outside so that the weather does not harm them, especially given the hurricanes that pass through periodically. I suppose if anyone can make that happen, it will be the people from the Smithsonian.
For those who have not seen photos of the murals, there are a number of them in earlier posts under the label Holy Trinity Cathedral and Schools. The most recent may be found at http://srsarah.blogspot.com/2011/02/video-appeal-for-holy-trinity-cathedral.html.
