Don’t Get Lost: New NAGB Symbols Explained

Very recently The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas installed a series of new navigational symbols on the Gallery walls, as well as in front of the Mixed Media Store. Our Chief Curator, John Cox, designed them to give guests a sense of direction in the Gallery, as our exhibition program has been changing rapidly in the past few months.

In today’s post we will explain the purpose of each symbol, what it means in relation to our exhibitions, as well as it’s physical location.

Permanent Exhibition section of the Gallery and it is located on the first floor, right across from the Mixed Media Store.

The Permanent Exhibition program seeks to prominently display the NAGB’s National Collection, as well as pieces from prominent Bahamian Art collectors. Exhibitions in this section will rotate constantly and may or may not entail an exhibition opening or notification. Currently, the historical exhibition, The Bahamian Landscape is located in the Permanent Exhibition.

In the past, the PS Room has featured the Paint Like Amos interactive activity, as well as results from the Education Department’s Photography Workshop with Scharad L. Lightbourne. Currently, the E. Clement Bethel National Arts exhibition entitled, The Essence of The Arts, is on display till October 28th, 2012.

Amos Ferguson: Bahamian Outsider exhibition till October 28th, 2012. T1 is a special space as it can house a single exhibition or be part of a larger exhibition with T2.
Amos Ferguson: Bahamian Outsider is in T2 till October 28th, 2012.

We hope that the new symbols will make your experience at the NAGB so much better.
