Exhibition Activity Guides
Looking to entertain the kids over the mid-term break? The Bermuda National Gallery will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Entry is free for children and students. We have three engaging exhibitions currently on display and we have designed a series of children’s activity booklets to encourage them explore each one.
Let Me Tell You Something: 2020 Bermuda Biennial
Sponsored by Bacardi Limited, the Bermuda Biennial provides a critical platform for the island’s contemporary art community. Engage children with the work of local artists, including the vibrant colours and bold patterns of Interactions Bermuda by emerging artist Gherdai Hassell which covers an entire wall of the Young Gallery.
What’s Poppin’! Pop Art And Its Influence
Presenting works from Andy Warhol and Lichtenstein to Banksy and Kaws, What’s Poppin’ explores the role of the Pop Art movement and the ways in which the Pop Art Philosophy and process continues to influence 21st century artists and culture. Works include references to pop culture icons such as Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse which provide a familiar entry point for children.
Land & Sea: Fragile Treasures
The local landscape has been a source of inspiration to many artists. Bring children in to discover the work of American Impressionists who flocked here at the turn of the century to capture Bermuda’s special quality of light and the region’s natural beauty. Encourage them to identify the locations and marvel at how little changed.
You can pick up the free children’s activity booklets at the front desk. Every child who completes an activity book will win a BNG wristband.
Tours of the gallery and all current exhibitions can be organised, free of charge, for small groups. Please call ahead to book.
Can’t make it to the gallery? The children’s activity packs can also be downloaded (free) via the exhibition pages for those who wish to explore the gallery online.
