exhibition THIS WEEKS COMMUNITY HIGHLIGHTS: Discover Haiti

If you’ve been following our Tweets, you know that we are enormously excited about the Discover Haiti Exhibition that is currently on display at the Urban Zen. It is a curation of inspiration from Haiti, a window into the visionary mind of our founder, and an opportunity to see a bourgeoning culture through the same lens as an iconic designer.

This week, we had the honor of sharing the exhibition with some very special guests. Donna welcomed peers from the design community along with representatives from both the political and business arenas to discover a world of inspiration uncovered during her frequent travels to Haiti. “Haiti has opened up the world and has changed my life,” she shared. “Anyone who has a desire to rebuild a nation should start with creativity. If you want to amplify the soul of a country, find the artists. That’s how you rebuild.”

We, of course, took the opportunity to chat with our online community about all of the happenings at the UZ Center. Here, we share some of the highlights:
