Presentation and Demonstration by Kesler Pierre, Visual and Performing Artist of Vodou Rituals and Objects. He presented intricate bottles he created as vessels of libation for Vodou water spirits called Lwa. They inspired his demonstration of ritual vèvè drawings that consist of curving lines of corn meal and coffee grounds, which form sacred symbols representing the Lwa. The vèvè serves as an invitation to the spirits to join a ritual ceremony. This was part of Celebrating Water: A Showcase of Master Artists from the NYFA Folk Artist Development Program on May 27th, 2012 at Greenwich House Music School.
