Celebrating St. Lucia’s Independence Day in NYC

The island of St. Lucia celebrated the 36th anniversary of its independence on February 22nd. In honor of this milestone several events were held by the Consulate General’s Office in Manhattan, including an exhibition of internationally acclaimed St. Lucian sculptor Jallim Eudovic.
 
The Koudmen Collection featuring the beautifully handcrafted wooden works created by Eudovic was on display during the first week of March.
 
Koudmen is a creole word that means community. It conveys the idea of people caring for one another. Each piece in the collection focuses on the ideals of Koudmen, something that Eudovic wants to share with the people he meets all over the world.
