One Family’s Tribute to Jackson Burnside

“One Family’s Tribute to Jackson Burnside” will be celebrated on Friday, February 3, 2012, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas.  This exhibition includes a photographic record of an outstanding salute to deceased cultural icon Jackson Burnside in the Boxing Day Junkanoo Parade.

The event features a Junkanoo rushout in honour of Jackson Burnside. [A Junkanoo “rush out” is where people dressed in masks come rushing out to the streets with cowbells, drums and whistles, to start the partying.]
