Students Present ‘Sharing the World With Animals’ at Caribbean Museum

Through the Animal Welfare Center’s Humane Education Program, V. Celeste Fahie has worked with teachers and students at St. Croix high schools on several topics related to animal abuse prevention and awareness, (Virgin Islands Law 6731), and sharing the world with animals. As a result of the students participation in the program, some artwork and class work of many students have been selected for a culmination presentation at the Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts (CMCarts) from Wednesday, May 19 through Saturday, May 22.

The opening will take place from 2-6 p.m. on May 19. Although the exhibit is free, the Humane Education Program is asking that small donations ($1 and up) be made on behalf of CMCarts, a non-profit museum supporting the community through the arts.
Elementary and junior high schools are encouraged to bring their students to this exhibit, but one adult must accompany every five students. Fahie also hopes that those attending this Friday’s Sunset Jazz will stop by before attending the jazz session. Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts hours are Wednesdays through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and on Saturday, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The museum is located at No. 10 Strand Street and No. 62 King Street, Frederiksted, St. Croix (772-2622).
The Humane Education Program is sponsored by Marmarus Management Company.
