How a Work of Art Becomes a Place of Learning

How a Work of Art Becomes a Place of Learning: "Matheu is one of the dozen international artists who are painting ten huge canvas tents, each one of which will be able to seat about 30 children and serve as temporary classrooms in earthquake-ravaged Haiti. The paint and the material for the tents are very specific in that they must withstand Haiti’s extreme weather; the curator and instigator of this project, called “Base Paint,” has made sure of that. He goes by the singular name of Antuan, and he too competes with another train when describing an undertaking that truly is incredible."
