The Chan Pratt Foundation, founded by the family of the late Bahamian artist Chan Pratt in an effort to preserve his legacy as a forerunner of Bahamian art, has committed itself to establishing a Chan Pratt Memorial Endowment at The College of The Bahamas.
Last October the family of the late Chan Pratt celebrated his life and work by launching The Chan Pratt Foundation with an art exhibition and auction. The Foundation was established to preserve the legacy of Chan Pratt as one of the pioneers in Bahamian art and to assist in the education and exposure of emerging Bahamian artists and art students.
On the evening of June 18, 2016 The Chan Pratt Foundation will host its second art show with the purpose of promoting young Bahamian artists.The #ArtIsLife exhibition will feature the works of the art students of The College of The Bahamas’ Pro Society.
Saturday, October 17, was a popular day for events all across Nassau. Nestled between the International Culture Festival and a reggae concert featuring Beres Hammond and Tarrus Riley, was a monumental event for Bahamian arts. The launch of the Chan Pratt Foundation took place on Saturday at Sapodilla Fine Dining estate and drew a spectacular amalgamation of artists, art enthusiasts and supporters of Chan Pratt including Prime Minister Perry Christie. Needless to say, the launch of the Chan Pratt Foundation was nothing short of a success.
Seven years after losing his father, DC Pratt has plans in store to remind the local community what it’s gained from Chan Pratt’s artistry. Determined to preserve his father’s legacy, Pratt has developed the Chan Pratt Foundation in hopes that his late father’s contribution to the Bahamian art movement will serve as inspiration for future and up-and-coming generations.
