The World Stage Haiti
*Update* Our friend, Kehinde Wiley, has been selected by former President Barack Obama to paint President Obama's official portrait. Read more here.
The New York Times calls Kehinde Wiley, "one of the most celebrated painters of his generation." In the minds of most, Haiti has never sparked quick associations with tranquility or beauty, and rarely as a travel destination. On the contrary, its modern history, fraught with poverty and corruption and ravaged by a devastating natural disaster, relegated it to a seemingly perpetual Third World status. Verb Cabin set out to document Mr. Wiley's incredible journey through Haiti in a 22-minute documentary film. This film aired for three months in the Brooklyn Museum in Brooklyn, New York.
