  General Information:

Established by an Act of Parliament in 1996, The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas is the first institution of its kind in the history of The Bahamas. The Government’s initiative to support a national art gallery reflected an understanding of how such institutions assist in nation building. It represents a vision that a national art gallery can be a place for Bahamians to view an important aspect of their culture. It also anticipates that The National Art Gallery will become a showpiece for tourism - a place where visitors from abroad can view the finest Bahamian artwork.


The Gallery’s mission is to collect, preserve, document and promote a National Collection of art for the benefit and education of Bahamians and the wider international audience. The NAGB assists in defining the Bahamian art movement that has to this point developed informally. The National Art Gallery supports the artistic community by extending its audiences, helping to define its standards and practices, and by broadening its impact.
