This year, campers explored the art and history of storytelling in The Bahamas and across the Caribbean diaspora. The rich and vibrant history of teaching and entertaining with the spoken word is deeply entrenched in our culture. The creatures that are spawned and the lessons we take with us are a substantial part of our heritage and shape our collective identity. As visual artists we are also storytellers, and the pieces we create are saturated with the journeys we long to share. In the tradition of our collective stories and in the pursuit of their personal stories the campers studied and experimented with a diverse range of art skills, mediums, and techniques.
Through hard work and dedication, campers have created amazing artworks in various mediums. It is a pleasure to now showcase this work at the NAGB, the country’s national art museum. We are pleased to invite you to the MMASC 2022 Exhibition Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony, on Thursday August 4, 2022 at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB). The ceremony begins at 6:30 p.m. in Fiona’s Theatre, after which we will view the artworks in the Project Space Room. The mural completed by the campers will also be on display at this time. The exhibition will be open for one month beginning on the night of the opening August 4th, 2022 and closing on September 4th, 2022. The event is free of charge and open to the public. Please note that all COVID-19 guidelines will be enforced. We look forward to seeing you and your family at the show.
