Son of sand and sea returns home

A decade of works come to the NAGB
With more than 50 works, the decade-long evolution of Lavar Munroe--a rising star in the contemporary arts world and native of The Bahamas--"Lavar Munroe: Son of The Soil" will be on display, beginning Thursday, September 13th, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Then join us again at 7 p.m., on Friday, September 14th, to explore the method behind the mad practice of this incredible talent. The Artist Talk and Walk, featuring Munroe, will be a fantastic discussion we are sure you won't want to miss!

Scenes from "Hard Mouth"

"Hard Mouth: From The Tongue of The Ocean" uses both the National Collection and local private collections to consider the power of language and its impact on the Bahamian visual art landscape.

This Permanent Exhibition looks into how our national vernacular has evolved over time and even reorients and repositions previously accepted ideas or norms. In a society where the oral tradition has defined much of the nation's cultural memory, it is no surprise that the tongue is both salve and sword.
