Artwork by 16 talented Bermudians was recently put on display in government buildings as part of a public art project, including the Dame Loise Brown Evans Building, the General Post Office and the Government Administration Building in Hamilton.

According to Dr Ernest Peets, the Minister of Culture: “We see this as an important way for our creatives to share their bold and unique visions with our community.

“These buildings are high traffic areas, and it’s a wonderful way for members of the public to see some amazing pieces depicting our environment, culture, and heritage up close.
