In Haiti, rescuing murals from a collapsed cathedral



A few days ago we were in Port Au Prince, Haiti, creating a proposal for the removal of 1950s murals from St. Trinite Cathedral. An 19th century Episcopal Cathedral rebuilt in 1924, the cathedral was decorated in the 1950s with monumental wall murals painted by Haiti's most important artists of the period which depict scenes from the life of Christ. The cathedral collapsed in the January 12, 2010 earthquake and only 3 of 12 original murals survive. The murals were painted directly on the reinforced concrete walls and are in very precarious condition, with many large sections lying in rubble on the ground, and others detaching from the wall. Rosa Lowinger & Associates and Viviana Dominguez Paintings Conservation worked under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution to document the remaining murals and create a protocol for their safe removal and conservation.
