Celebrate HAMOC’s 9th Anniversary!


Leve l roughly translates to “Uplift” in Haitian Kreyol. After another challenging year due to COVID-19 and the multiple events that have affected Haitians across the globe, HAMOC is looking forward to a night of commemoration and celebration.

 Our Mission

  • The Haitian American Museum of Chicago, or HAMOC, exists to promote Haitian art, culture and history in metropolitan Chicago and surrounding communities, nationally and internationally through advocacy, education and supportive services.

The Haitian American Museum of Chicago (HAMOC) is proud to present another collaborative exhibit in partnership with the Waterloo Center for the Arts

On view, safely, at the museum!

This is an exhibit to remember the Haitian lives affected by the earthquakes, hurricanes and border crisis and to recognize the long road to recovery. We must keep our Haitian brothers and sisters in mind as the media transitions them out of the top stories.
