Artist Samson Tonton Celebrating Haitian Heritage Month in May with Two Days of Art in Norwich, Conn.

By: MMM Editorial Team

In celebration of Haitian Heritage Month in May, Norwich-based artist Samson Tonton will be participating in Two Days of Art at Otis Library and Greenville Neighborhood Community (261 Main Street in Norwich). The admission is free, but a small donation of $5.00 for the Haitian Community Center is suggested.

On Friday, May 10 there will be a Dress Formal from 6:00-9:00 p.m. (Doors Open at 5:30 p.m) with food catered by Mommy’s Restaurant. On Saturday, May 11 from 12:00-2:00 p.m. (Doors open at 11:30 a.m.), there will be a Family Event where Tonton will be signing copies of his artwork. 

"My country needs something positive right now," said Tonton. “What better way to celebrate Haitian Heritage Month and educate the community here in Norwich on the beauty of Haiti with these two days of art.” 

Tonton's art reflects on the natural beauty of Haiti and its people in hopes for a healed country. Emerging from a period of unprecedented challenges and upheaval, the artwork serves as a beacon of hope and resilience, urging viewers to embrace their vulnerability as a path towards personal growth and authenticity.

With his distinctive cubism style and powerful cultural message, Tonton is at the forefront of a new generation of Black and Haitian artists breaking barriers and redefining the art world. Tonton was featured in an Ebony profile in 2023. His work was exhibited at ArtExpo New York in 2018 and 2022. For more information on Samson Tonton, visit
