Citizen collection

Inspired by Marie Joseph Angélique


Call for Artists/ Live painting!  

On February 17th and 18th, the museum is hosting a live painting session titled "Inspired by Marie Joseph Angélique" to create its third citizen collection. Participants will be invited to create a painted work inspired by this enslaved woman with a tragic destiny.

This project, drawing inspiration from the tragic fate of Marie-Josèphe Angélique, continues the initiatives undertaken by the Afromusée over the past two years.

The museum provides the canvas, easel, and compensation of $200 per participant. The artist should bring their paints and tools such as brushes and spatulas.
