The Smithsonian and the Haitian government are attempting to recover and restore art damaged by the earthquake in Haiti.

The Haitian art world suffered great losses in the earthquake, with museums and galleries extensively damaged--including Port-au-Prince's main art museum, the Centre d'Art.

A major recovery project is underway, headed by the Smithsonian and the Haitian government, to restore as much of the artwork as possible.

Sabri Ben-Achour and The Kojo Nnamdi Show will be broadcasting from Haiti all this week.
