The Bermuda National Gallery provides a safe and welcoming space for contemplation in these trying times. Indeed, some doctors are prescribing museum visits to combat Covid-19 stress.
The safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is of the utmost importance. We have increased our cleaning regimen throughout the galleries and hand sanitizer is provided in each room. Masks must be worn and social distancing observed. A government SafeKey is not required for general admission but they are for events.
We have been planning a Poetry Response to celebrate the close of I Am Because You Are, which was scheduled for the end of this month. We are keen to hold the event before a live audience and have therefore decided to extend Gherdai Hassell’s exhibition through to the end of October. If you haven’t already seen the exhibition in person, we urge you to do so.
Opening in the Watlington Room in early November, The Bermuda Biennial: A Retrospective looks back at 30 years of contemporary Bermuda art through a selection of works produced for the Bermuda Biennial which are now held in our permanent collection.
