Kingston Art Gallery Hopping With A Curator and Historian

Experience hosted by Winston

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

This is a visual experience of Jamaica's capital city that is like no other experience. Our art galleries reveal the true local creative thinking as we explore art by emerging and established artists.

Participants will be picked up at their Kingston hotel/hostel/Air BnB residence and driven to the galleries in air conditioned comfort. We will have conversations about the history of the city based on the observed architectural, aesthetic and social characteristics while in transit. These conversations will also create a context for locating the art that will be viewed on the tour.

Our stops will include CreativSpace, the Olympia Art Center and the Grosvenor Galleries. We will spend 30-45 minutes at each site looking at the visual and contextual characteristics of the art on display. Taking pictures of/with your favourite artwork (and sometimes the artists) is mostly permissible.

We will have refreshments at each site. Our choices will be between water, juice, coconut water, and Jamaican beer.

At the end of the tour, we will head back to the hotel/hostel/residence in air conditioned comfort, while listening to some classic reggae/dancehall music over the radio.

Hi there!
I have spent the past two decades delivering courses and lessons in the areas of art, culture and aesthetics. I have also worked as an art curator. As a lover of Jamaican culture, I enjoy talking about all things Jamaican with my friends from all over the world. I speak fluent English and I am also able to present in Jamaican, if desired.
