Following the success of the MUSE exhibit featuring juxtaposed works by "Father of Bahamian Art" Brent Malone and new-school prodigy Allan Wallace, the D'Aguilar Art Foundation is now home to a solo exhibit by emerging Bahamian photographer, Delton Barrett. His work draws parallels between his body and nature - comparing himself to the softness of trees, the soil and the flowers around him. The exhibition will be open until the end of July. 

The D'Aguilar Art Foundation (DAF), launched in 2008, is the culmination of Vincent D’Aguilar’s vision for Bahamian art. The Foundation seeks to preserve and expand Vincent's vast collection, to promote appreciation and education of fine art and provide support for Bahamian-based artists. DAF's Bahamian Artwork Collection, comprised of over 450 oeuvres, is a historical representation of the development of contemporary Bahamian art over the past five decades. Ranging from the representational to the abstract, the collection is as diverse as it is dynamic. You can view the collection here
