The featured performance, scheduled to start at 2 pm, is by the acclaimed Free Willies band, with Omar Francis as the lead singer and guitarist. They will play from their repertoire of reggae, rock and blues. The focus of the programme will be our permanent exhibitions, which has been supplemented with a temporarily reinstallation of the AD Scott Collection, a major donation to the National Gallery in 1999 by one of the pioneering art collectors of the post-independence period. Free tours and children’s activities will be offered, with a special focus on themes related to Emancipation and Independence in our collections, in keeping with the upcoming national observations.
As is now customary for Last Sundays, admission to the NGJ will be free on Sunday, July 27, and the guided tours and children’s activities will also be free. Our gift and coffee shop will be open for business and contributions to the donations box are welcomed. Revenues from our shops and donations help to fund programmes such as our exhibitions and our Last Sundays programming.
