The Musée d’Art Haitien du Collège St. Pierre is still closed to the public more than three years after Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake. Repairing the museum is estimated at $200,000.00. To this day, it has received no funds from any institution, national or international. Only some emergency work has been done—repair of the storage room—thanks to contributions from its board members.
The Musée d’Art Haitien du Collège St. Pierre was built in 1972 in the historic center of the city of Port-au-Prince with the help of Alfred Voegeli, Bishop of the Episcopal Church of Haiti. The building was designed by famous Haitian architect Albert Mangones. The museum remains one of the few institutions for the entire population of Port-au-Prince that preserves the Haitian paintings of the twentieth century.
