NGJ Last Sundays: October 28, 2012

The National Gallery of Jamaica is pleased to announce the continuation of its monthly “Last Sundays” programme and will again be open to the public Sunday, October 28 from 11 am to 4 pm.

Visitors will be able to view the acclaimed World-A-Reggae exhibition, which features the 100 best from the First International Reggae Poster Contest with entries from all over the world, as well as our permanent exhibitions, which provide an overview of Jamaican art from the Taino to the present.

 As a special feature, the acoustic band Jakoostik will be performing at 1 pm., featuring Wayne Armond, Seretse Small and Donald Waugh on guitar, with songs by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, Toots and the Maytals and others, creating a relaxed and engaging atmosphere conducive for the entire family to enjoy Jamaican art and the National Gallery on a Sunday afternoon.

As is now customary on our Last Sundays, admission will be free for the day. Free guided tours will also be offered at 11:30 am, 12:30 am and 2:30 pm. A special children’s activities tour will start at 2 pm. Participation in these tours is limited to 25 persons and is dealt with on a “first come, first served” basis.

Our gift shop and coffee shop will be open for business and we will gratefully accept contributions to our donations box – revenues from these activities provide much-needed support for our exhibitions, publications and education programmes.
