Two shows: Mocko Jumbie and Hibiscus
I was so impressed with the well-organized and informative opening of the art museum's Black History show: Moko Jumbies: Communicating with the Ancestors; Protecting the Community held January 26th from 5-7PM. The history of the moko jumbies on St. Croix, narrated by Guardians of Culture founder and mentor, Willard John and highlighted by 3 performing mokos, was captivating and entertaining. The artwork in the show was wonderfully diverse and creative. Quite a few Palletteers exhibited in the show.
