The Caribbean Art Festival
The monthly arts festival will be of the first of its kind to combine visual, performing and musical arts from St. Maarten’s avant-garde arts scene.
Thierry Gombs, director of culture, sports and youth affairs in St. Maarten, discusses the importance of the Arts in the Plaza festival to St. Maarten. “I think that the event should be something interesting. It is always good to showcase what we have here in St. Maarten — whether they are native St. Maarteners or people that decided to live here in St. Maarten, they show off their art. It is an event that could promote the island that could showcase what is done locally here, and of course, anything that is done for the promotion of this little rock, I’m there,” said Gombs.
The event is free and open to the public. The festival will continue into 2011 with new performances and exhibits each month scheduled for January 19, February 16, March 16, April 20 and May 18. A complete listing of featured artists will be announced prior to each event at http://www.stmaartenlife.com. For festival updates like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/artsintheplaza. Orient Express Hotels, La Samanna Resort, Porto Cupecoy and Dom Perignon Champagne are sponsoring the festival.
The Porto Cupecoy Plaza will host the Arts Festival. Porto Cupecoy Plaza is located on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, the culinary, shopping and yachting capital of the Caribbean. Nestled in a protected cove on Simpson Bay, and just across the border from Terra Basse and the French side of the island, Porto Cupecoy offers the best of both distinct sides of this breath taking island.
