NAGB Announces New Hours & Free Gallery Day for Bahamians

By Dionne Benjamin

The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas is pleased to announce that we have extended our hours to allow the Bahamian public and our international visitors more opportunities to engage and experience our wonderful Gallery and the art within.

The NAGB will now be open every Sunday from 12 Noon to 4pm in addition to its normal operating hours of 10 am to 4pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays. The Gallery is closed on Mondays and on Public Holidays. The cost for admission for Adults is $5.00, Students and Senior Citizens (Over 65) is $3.00 and Children are free under 12 years of age.

In addition to the extended hours, the Gallery has now instituted a "Free Gallery Day for Bahamians" to take place one Sunday each month affording Bahamians, specifically, the chance to learn through the visual arts at the NAGB about the diverse artistic history and culture that is their own.

The first "Free Gallery Day for Bahamians" will take place Sunday, February 19th, 2012 in honour of cultural icon and NAGB friend, Jackson L. Burnside III.
