Central Bank of The Bahamas 34th Annual Art Competition

Natalie Willis

The NAGB is always keen to support efforts in that help us promote and sustain the arts in the Bahamas. This time, we're talking about the Central Bank Art Competition.

Since 1984, the Central Bank stages an annual art competition and exhibition, through which it continues to uncover and showcase budding Bahamian talent in the visual arts. For many, this competition and exhibition has served as an introduction to the Bahamian art world, and the exposure received has been an invaluable first step in growing their gifts. Moreover, in staging this event, the Central Bank has enjoyed the distinct privilege of assisting young Bahamians in educational pursuits that have helped them to further develop their skills, and a number of them have gone on to very promising and successful professional careers in visual arts.
