Public Art Programme

Run for the Arts

A series of large-scale murals commissioned as part of the inaugural BNG 5K Run for The Arts sponsored by Chubb are now complete. The project, which was organised by BNG and Nhuri Bashir in collaboration with Donna Raynor and Domico Watson, was conceived to raise funds for a vibrant public art programme in the North-East Hamilton area to highlight and promote the area’s communities. 

Three murals have now been installed: Earl Cameron by Selaah Stephenson at Belvin’s Variety on Happy Valley Road, One Love by Alshante Foggo at Pembroke Laundromat on Parsons Road and Outside by Keile Rabain at Pembroke Park Playground Bathroom on Parsons Road. 

The programme returns this year and we hope that you will join us on Sunday, April 21, for the second BNG 5K Run for the Arts sponsored by Chubb, which features a competitive run, along with a fun run/walk. The event is open to all — those who consider themselves serious athletes, as well as those who don’t!

This is not just a race but a community endeavour: a chance to support the vibrant atmosphere in North-East Hamilton, and to help raise funds for the arts! Your race will help:

  • To finance a vibrant public art programme, with the installation of additional large-scale murals in the North-East Hamilton area to highlight and promote the area’s communities.
  • To fund a paid placement on the BNG Internship Programme for a student from the area, providing professional development in all aspects of museum operations, and opening the door to a career in the arts.
  • To support Bermuda National Gallery’s 2024 education department and programming initiatives, offering enriching educational experiences in the arts for learners of all ages.

Save the Date: April 21. Race registration details coming soon
