ABOUT

The Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts, Inc. (CMCArts) was conceived by Candia Atwater in 1994 as a means of addressing the increase in violence afflicting the youth of St. Croix.  Her goal was to provide and teach alternative forms of positive expression through art.  At that time, Atwater, a prosecutor for the Department of Justice handling matters in Family Court and an avid collector of Caribbean art, saw the need to have a special place for children, as well as the larger island community to create and appreciate art in all its forms.  To address that need she initiated a quality, multi-faceted arts program that focused on our island's youth.  As part of CMCArts annual offerings, Ms. Atwater also initiated the now much beloved and eagerly anticipated ISLAND ART & SOUL calendar which showcases Caribbean artists and their work.  Since 2003, CMCArts programs and exhibitions have been housed in a beautiful, historic building on Strand Street in Frederiksted.
