In celebration of Bermuda’s 400th anniversary, the Bermuda National Trust (BNT) and the Bermuda National Gallery (BNG) have worked in collaboration to tailor a major exhibition that aims to visually and thematically explore and present Bermuda’s culture. The collection of arts will reflect Bermuda both what it is today and its evolution since settlement. By visually displaying historical and contemporary works side by side, these institutions hope to provide insight into Bermuda’s economic, social, and cultural development.
The exhibition, featuring fine art and decorative objects from the BNT and the BNG’s extensive collections, will run from Wednesday, September 9, 2009 through January 1, 2010. It will take place at the Bermuda National Gallery in Hamilton. The gallery is open from 10am to 4:30pm.
