The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas - NAGB Newsletter
Holidays! This edition of the NAGB newsletter provides updates around
the upcoming Curbside Holiday Pop-Up, Holiday Tour, PULSE exhibitions,
ACE Series and so much more! So make plans to spend the holiday season
with your favourite museum.
CURBSIDE HOLIDAY POP UP
holiday season might look different this year but, the National Art
Gallery of The Bahamas is determined to keep it merry and bright—and
safe—in a series of special “curbside” pop-up holiday markets on our
grounds. Spread good cheer by shopping local this year and supporting
our Bahamian artists and creative entrepreneurs. Explore handmade
ornaments, apparel, Christmas cards, jewellery, artwork, décor and more
in a safe, socially-distanced outdoor environment. Also, be sure to
check out more local goodies in our Mixed Media shop and explore our PULSE series
of outdoor exhibitions while taking a walk in our Art Park. We have
implemented mandatory masks, temperature checks, sanitization stations
and crowd control to ensure social distancing and safety.
To wrap up our seasonal events, we are bringing you a special Holiday Tour! Tune in to the NAGB on Facebook Live on Sunday, December 20th, 2020 for a virtual tour featuring a little of each of our online exhibitions.
ACE Series continues the museum’s mission to empower our creative
community with opportunities to engage in transformative encounters.
this session, we welcome museum professional Sherilyn Jones, who will
present a talk on the role of museums as spaces for community building,
preservation of heritage and fellowship intended for cultural workers,
artists and creative professionals.
"Blank Canvas," we meet the artists from the latest NAGB show,
onePULSE, who will be unveiling murals at the NAGB and later in our
surrounding community! We talk about public art and each of their
projects. Joining us are (clockwise from the top middle): Lemero Wright,
Matthew Rahming, Alisa Streather and Ben Ferguson (joining from
Freeport, Grand Bahama), Jodi Minnis and Amaani Hepburn.
