The Bahamian Project Preserving the Legacy of Bahamian Life
The Haynes Library in Eleuthera started the new year with a display of ten fine-art photographic portraits from The Bahamian Collection.
The Bahamian Project is expanding from a one-man show to over a dozen photographers seeking to capture the spirit of the nation’s population.
More than 300 people flocked to the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) to witness the historic unveiling of The Bahamian Collection – an exhibition of photographic portraits of men and women from all walks of life, who together represent the heart, soul and spirit of the Bahamian character.
Under the distinguished patronage of the Governor General and Lady Foulkes, the Bahamian Collection opened to a crowd of about 300 people over the course of the evening, making it one of the largest openings at The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas.
