Why locals love it

This center for art is near Ciné Lido just back from the road. Here you will find voodoo-themed and political art made of found objects including kitchen utensils, springs, recycled toys, and other household items.

Why you should visit it

This looks like a junkyard but it's really a combination of outdoor studios for working artists and an interactive museum. Voodoo themes and phallic imagery is heavily represented, as are works with made with the heads of baby dolls. You can walk through the area, talking with artists and their apprentices as they work. Some art is also for sale.

Special tip

The cost of art is negotiable if you choose to buy, though this is not required. There's also a children's program for local kids, Ti Moun Rezistans.
