NEW YORK — Summer is here, complete with a bevy of Haitian cultural events around the city.

Among the first up is an art exhibition at the Consul General of France in New York, open to the public on June 11 at the agency’s Manhattan headquarters. Showcasing works by 27 Haitian artists, proceeds from the artwork sales will go to support The Haitian Roundtable, whose mission is to encourage civic engagement between  Haitian-Americans. Featured artists include sculptor and painter Mario Aristhene, painter Tara Boirard and Patricia Brintle.   

The Saturday art exhibition will cost $50 per ticket and runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
