The NAGB is committed to engaging the history of Bahamian Art and Visual culture and supporting contemporary movements and experimental contemporary art practice through exhibitions, an extensive public program schedule, community and regional projects and partnerships, arts education, providing fellowships and grants, the establishment and support of an art library and the building of the National Collection.
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. NAGB Website
