The Bahamian Project hits the airwaves on Monday, March 25 at 6pm on Guardian Radio show Bush Tea 96.9fm.
Bush Tea, a radio show hosted by Guardian Managing Editor Erica Wells, explores all aspects of Bahamian life and culture through insightful interviews, profiles and features.
On Monday March 25th the show will feature The Bahamian Project, a three-year initiative, in collaboration with the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas (NAGB) and Popopstudios International Center For The Visual Arts.
Photographer and creator of The Bahamian Project Duke Wells and his wife Lisa Wells join John Cox, NAGB chief curator and Popopstudios founder, as guests on the popular radio show.
Through the project Duke and Lisa aim to create a collection of large, high quality, black and white fine art portrait photographs that document the character of the individuals who represent the positive spirit of the Bahamas. Ultimately, it is hoped that this collection will be the foundation for the country’s first permanent National Portrait Gallery.
The NAGB will unveil the exhibit of the first 40 framed portraits on July 11, 2013 as part of the programming for the Bahamas 40th Independence Anniversary.
During the talk show many aspects of The Bahamian Project will be discussed including who is being photographed, why and what this project means to Bahamians today and future generations of the Bahamas. Tune in…
The show “Bush Tea” airs Mondays 6:30pm – 7:30pm on Guardian Radio 96.9fm
