GFDD and FUNGLODE Partner with OAS Art Museum of the Americas Exhibit: On Common Ground: Dominican Republic and HaitiJanuary 30, 2013
As part of its commitment to support and publicize the goals and programs of the Organization of American States (OAS) and in partnership with the Embassies of the Dominican Republic and Haiti in Washington, D.C., GFDD and FUNGLODE is pleased to present On Common Ground: Dominican Republic and Haiti. This is an exhibit of works created by emerging artists of Hispaniola, the island that these two countries share. These artists offer fresh perspectives on
Hispaniola’s cultural scene and address misconceptions of its two nations’ complex relationship with one another, imagining a brighter future.
The exhibition also furthers AMA’s mission of promoting the Inter-American agenda through the promotion of democracy and social change through the arts, consensus building, and the encouragement of diversity.
During the Art Exhibit which runs from February 14 till May 26, GFDD will utilize the occasion
to host a special Dominican Film Showcase to present, share and celebrate the stories, characters and history of the Dominican Republic with an international audience.
