AUG. 25 IS SUMMER 'STARVING ARTISTS DAY' AT WHIM

Aug. 20, 2002 – The 14th annual Starving Artists Day summer show is this Sunday at the Whim Museum.
Some 50 visual artists and artisans will be exhibiting their work, but there also will be performance art and culinary art galore.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $3 for adults and free for children.
There will be live jazz by Bennie Jacobs El and the Complex Combo from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Henry Willock's St. Croix All Stars Steel Band will take over from 2 to 5 p.m.
For those who arrive before noon, breakfast will be available from Roque's Catering Service. Local foods and drinks will be sold throughout the day. And for food to take home as well as nibble on site, Farmers in Action will have a fresh produce stand chock full of mangoes, pineapples, passion fruit, coconuts and more.
Free museum tours will be given throughout the day, and visitors can view historic photos in the research library. In a tent set up on the grounds, the Museum Store will be selling selected furniture, artwork and decorative accessories at savings of 40 to 70 percent.
Especially for children, there will be storytelling under the tamarind tree and kids' games and other activities.
Tickets for a 50/50 cash raffle to benefit the museum will be sold until 4 p.m., when the winner will be drawn.
Vendor sales are by cash or check; plastic is not accepted.
It's not too late for art and craft vendors to sign up for a booth. To do so, or to learn more, call the Whim office at 772-0598.
