Statement on the Crisis at the Border


 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.

Event Spotlight

priyè pou ayiti | prayers for Haiti

Curated by the Waterloo Center for the Arts

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.
