Little Haiti Mural - Welcome to Little Haiti

Little Haiti Mural - Welcome to Little Haiti.

The murals in 'Little Haiti' reflect the history of Haiti and other images which are closely associated with the country's rich heritage such as voodoo, periodic table, national flag, and the first Haitian slave. Serge Toussaint is an artist and muralist born in Haiti. His creations can be found in several parts of Miami-Dade County, including Little Haiti, because as per his statement, history and culture of Haiti influence his work tremendously. His murals beautify the dilapidated walls, storefronts, the underbellies of bridges, the big Roman Catholic Church in the neighborhood, Notre Dame D'Haiti and every other open spot of plaster or cement he can find. Toussaint says his murals serve three main purposes. Firstly, they inform possible customers about what a business offers; secondly, they beautify the neighborhood; and lastly, they keep Haitian heritage alive.
