The Vassar Haiti Project celebrates twenty years of supporting education, health, environmental and women's initiatives in a rural region of northwest Haiti.
From September 7 through October 7, more than 70 original Haitian artworks will be available for auction. Bidding will take place in nominal increments over the course of the month. Our auctions provide a great opportunity for any art enthusiast looking for both great deals and some unusual and unique pieces, all of which will be featured in a website gallery open to the public.
The online auction and live events can all be accessed through www.thehaitiproject.org. All purchases are 50% tax deductible and donations are 100% tax deductible.
