Running through September 5, a new exhibition of Haitian art at the Frost Art Museum has adopted this folk curiosity as its central metaphor. Enter Tap-Tap this Tuesday and tour the country from les provinces to la ville, le marché, and léglise aboard papier-mâché buses by sculptors Yvens Leger, Jean Thermidor, and a pair of unknowns. You will see the Eden-like seaside landscapes of Wagler Vital, a Cap Haitien street scene by Lesly, and Jacques Valmidors Christian wedding. Typically, a tap-tap ride costs cinq gourdes, but this one is free.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.; Sundays, noon. Starts: July 13. Continues through Sept. 5, 2010
