The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas - NAGB Newsletter


Happy 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.


The 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, d├ęcor 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.
