40 Years of Collecting Haitian Art

The Waterloo Center for the Arts began its collection of art from Haiti in 1977 when Dr. and Mrs. F. Harold Reuling donated several paintings they had purchased while vacationing there. Over the last four decades, the Haitian Collection at the Waterloo Center for the Arts has grown to over 1,500 works of art and is recognized as the largest public collection of Haitian art in the world. Throughout the museum you will see fine examples of Haitian art forms including paintings, beaded and sequined flags, metal and wood sculptures, assemblages, papier-mâché and more.
