The Institute of Caribbean Studies will honor Dr. Guy Harvey with the Luminary Award. He will be presented with the award during the 20th Annual Caribbean American Heritage Awards (CARAH) Gala at the JW Marriott on Friday, November, 22, 2013.
Dr. Guy Harvey, a world renowned oceanographer, is widely recognized as the world’s finest marine wildlife artist. He combines his unique artistic talents with his background as a marine biologist, diver, photographer, cinematographer, and angler, to create marine wildlife art with an unmatched authenticity and visual appeal. As Founder of the Guy Harvey Research Institute, the Jamaican UWI graduate works with many organizations around the world, sharing his love for the sea through the production of documentaries — plus the hit television series “Guy Harvey’s Portraits From The Deep.
Growing up in Jamaica, Dr. Harvey enjoyed all the sea had to offer. He loved fishing and sailing. Soon he was filling sketchbooks of the colorful aquatic life he observed. He merged his artistic talent and love of the sea to become a marine biologist. His beautiful artwork decorates miles of boardwalks and oceanfront properties around the world.
His work in ocean conservation, carried out through a network of organizations including the Guy Harvey Research Institute, works to protect fisheries around the world. The Guy Harvey Outposts, a collection of resorts, inspires guests to enjoy the ocean, promote sustainable tourism, and engage in activities that do not interfere with nature.
