Creating Tanama, Haitian Superhero


3:00pm  — 5:00pm


Performing Arts Center / Upper Lobby

Haitian comic book artist Thony Loui will be artist in residence during the Haiti Festival.

With the help of Purchase students, Haitian comic book artist and School of Art+Design artist in residence Thony Loui will complete work on the first comic book featuring his latest superhero creation, Tanama. She uses her special powers to support smallholder farmers—and women smallholders in particular—in Haiti and around the world as they overcome tremendous hardships and fight off evil forces to combat climate change through tree planting.

Visit the Tanama Studio, meet the artist, check on the comic book’s progress, and see Thony’s art on display in the  Upper Lobby of the Performing Arts Center during the Festival.
