To the generous donors of our GlobalGiving Art Exploration Campaign,  

We are pleased to report that your charitable contributions helped us purchase a new audio book storyteller character for our Book Nook. The books in our reading nook have been removed due to COVID-19. Therefore, in an effort to continue to provide a quiet place for families to take a play break, we have added an audiobook device to the Book Nook. Children and families can sit in the cozy reading space to explore literature and song together by coupling character figurines with the audio device. 

Donations in this funding cycle allowed us to acquire a new character storyteller, The Gruffalo. This award winning children’s book was written by Julia Donaldsonis in rhyming couplets, featuring repetitive verse with minor variance. The Gruffalo is a fitting addition for Fall, a time when various holidays may present scary things and monsters. The monster character in this book helps families explore human fear of the unknown and the unexplained while teaching kids not to be unduly fearful. Kids regularly ask for new song and story characters, and we are pleased your donations have helped us provide this avenue for families to explore the arts in a unique way. 

The art exploration campaign is ongoing and while our Book Nook exhibit continues to be a beloved place for families to enjoy songs, nursery rhymes, and stories together, it is in need of an update; paint is worn and cushion covers are threadbear. We will continue to make improvements in this area to allow families to explore literature and song in a clean and cozy environment. 

Thank you for helping the Virgin Islands Children’s Museum expand the literary offerings in our Book Nook space. 

Sincerely, 

The VICM Team

The Virgin Islands Children’s Museum strives to incorporate the arts into our programming and interactive exhibits. We are pleased to report that your charitable contributions helped us upgrade components of our Music Exploration Corner and helped us produce themed coloring pages for use outside the museum walls. 

The funds you provided allowed us to replace a damaged floor piano, helped us print coloring pages for youth arts and crafts tables at special events, and aided in the installation of a new electrical outlet for our electronic drum set. 

The art exploration campaign is ongoing and plans are underway to build on our current arts related offerings and develop new opportunities to help families get creative and Explore, Play, Discover, in the museum and at community events. 

Thank you for your support!

To the generous donors of our GlobalGiving Art Exploration Campaign, 

The Virgin Islands Children’s Museum focuses on Science, Technology, Reading and wRiting, Engineering, Art, Math (STREAM) based learning through family engagement and play. We strive to incorporate the arts through programming and interactive exhibits. Our art exploration campaign includes a Music Exploration Corner and we are pleased to report that your charitable contributions helped us improve safety features for this popular exhibit.

Making music enhances fine and large motor skills and builds brain and body coordination. Families enhance communication skills while strengthening bonds in playing music together.  The funds you provided covered the cost of a cable management system to safely secure the electrical cords needed to power our electronic drum set. Further, donations have helped offset the cost of a variety of disinfectant supplies needed to clean and maintain the entire music corner. 

The art exploration campaign is ongoing and our Music Exploration Corner exhibit continues to be a beloved place for families to make music together. Since the onset of this art exploration fundraising initiative over 500 visitors have engaged with the Music Exploration Corner. Thank you for helping us help families Explore, Play, Discover, in a safe environment.

 

Sincerely, 

The VICM Team
