On Saturday June 5th the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts unveiled the official Virgin Islands of the United States Madras fabric to the public at the Frederick Dorsch Cultural Center in Frederiksted.
The official madras fabric was established by Act No. 8424 (BILL NO. 33-0226). This Act amended the Virgin Islands Code Title 1, Chapter 7 to establish the official Madras of the Virgin Islands of the United States.
These are the winners from the 2021 (virtual) Virgin Islands Poetry Out Loud Territorial Competition!!
Virgin Islands artists are always in demand. Join our artist registry to be a part of upcoming exhibits and other opportunities.
