The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) is pleased to announce Shared Stories: Vizcaya and The Bahamas, a lecture series, the first between both institutions . On Thursday, May 16th, 2019 at 7:00 p.m., the museum will host Remko Jansonius, Deputy Director, Collections and Curatorial Affairs, and Wendy R. Wolf, Deputy Director, Learning and Community Engagement, of the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida. The keynote speakers will discuss connections between people and place, and how we relate.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens was built in the 1910’s and the historic house, formal gardens and farm village demonstrate global influences from the Caribbean, Asia and Europe. An interesting observation is that Vizcaya’s domestic and garden staff records suggests a connection to Bahamian heritage. The question of the impact of Bahamian culture and migration on Vizcaya’s design, construction and life on the estate will also be discussed.

“The Shared Stories: Vizcaya and The Bahamas conversation is an amazing opportunity to explore Bahamian and South Floridian links,” Holly Bynoe, Chief Curator, said. “As the leading art institution in The Bahamas, the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas works continuously to actively nurture and provoke constructive discussions with experts and to build international institutional partnerships. The museum also ensures that these forums are designed to educate, uplift and inspire from various entry points.”

The Shared Stores: Vizcaya and The Bahamas event is free and open to the public. If you would like to know more about upcoming exhibitions, programming or rental opportunities available at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, please visit https://nagb.org.bs/ or call 242.328.5800.
