Naples art galleries and Fifth Avenue South shopping are world renowned. “The Lady from Haiti” Haitian Art Gallery and Funky Boutique is one of the reasons that is so. This amazing little spot is chock full of Haitian folk art made from recycled and painted 55-gallon steel drums, among other things.
    This art form is relatively new in Haiti, dating back approximately sixty years, and by most accounts, originating with M. Georges Liautaud, a mechanic and metal worker from a small town outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Cast-off steel drums are reborn and painted as beautiful and exotic wall or floor sculptures, towel racks, napkin holders, and key hooks.
