In February 2010, more than 100 children from the Maranatha School and Orphanage - who had lost their homes, schools and possessions to Haiti's earthquake - poured their dreams for the future onto canvasses. Their paintings became the I Am Haiti art exhibition shown at Rogue Space | Chelsea Gallery which in turn became a series of luxury scarves being sold al around the world to fund a sustainable community and build a more secure future for the children.
The project was the initiative of FilmsOnArtists documentary filmmaker Kevin O'Hanlon who teamed up with Haitian artist Richard Laurent and and brought canvasses and paints t the school and encouraged the kids to paint their hopes.
The funds actualized from the exhibition of their work was used to rebuild their school which was destroyed int he earthquake.
