The Fairwind Exhibition, a permanent showcase of more than 250 works of Bahamian art, was recently unveiled at the Performing Arts and Convention Center at Baha Mar. The showcase was curated by the artists of The Current led by John Cox, Creative Director.

The walls of the Convention Center are lined with pieces created by prominent and emerging artists and include a range of mediums, styles and subjects. Through this work, visitors are introduced to Bahamian history and culture, while locals can experience the depth of the Bahamian perspective through art in a refreshing and vibrant space. The exhibition also highlights artists that have been featured in the interior spaces of the hotel and allows their artwork to be appreciated as a full body of work in a carefully curated environment.

Graeme Davis, president of Baha Mar, expressed his appreciation for the exhibition, stating, “We deeply value the opportunity to offer a global platform for an exhibition of this significance and are honored to share such an intimate, culturally important vision of Bahamian history with the world.” John Cox, Creative Director,  explained, “The Fairwind exhibition is inspired by the ideologies and artistic expressions of the early generations of Bahamian artists, as well as the exciting works of our contemporaries.
