Sacred Symbols in Sequins: Vintage Haitian Vodou Flags

A program of ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance and the National Endowment for the Arts.

For many, the term "Vodou" brings up unfortunate Hollywood-inspired imagery involving hexes and curses, but our museum visitors will gain new insights to the beauty and sanctity of Haitian Vodou by viewing exquisite early to mid-20th century Haitian Vodou flags (drapo Vodou), Voudou libation bottles, and portraits of contemporary Vodou practioners by renowned photographer Phyllis Galembo.

This exhibition is brought to Shreveport by the Friends of the Meadows Museum.
