SPECIAL FEATURES

Refuge - Alisa Streather Robinson

“Refuge” was conceived as an open call to a community in crisis, on a national level of course, but also within our art community. With artists hailing from the #abacostrong and #grandbahamastrong and struggling to process and find relief in this historic moment of national tragedy, would it be considered wrong, or too soon, to give people time to process? For some, it would be, but for others it seemed a welcome outlet. Surprisingly, more artists from Grand Bahama and Abaco sent in entries than for any open call for works the museum had ever received, and one of these artists was Alisa Streather Robinson.
