Conservation, reconstruction and healing

The NYT reports on the conservation work being done on the three remaining murals of the Episcopal Trinity Cathedral in Port-au-Prince, in Haiti.  Originally there were 14 murals  but they were almost totally destroyed in the earthquake in 2010. The article, appropriately titled "Haiti's scars, and its soul, find healing on walls" discusses the project carried out through a partnership between the Episcopal Church and the Smithsonian, with the support and enthusiasm of the local population.
