Bahama Village: Relics of a Fading Community Exhib

January 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Key West Art & Historical Society is hosting an opening reception for new special exhibition, “Bahama Village: Relics of a Fading Community”, that will be on display from January 13 to March 19, 2023. The exhibition will explore the history and culture of the often-overlooked segment of the community – former and current residents of Bahama Village. History and stories will be woven together through various events that shaped the Black and Indigenous cultures of Key West.

“This exhibition aims to build cultural equity by telling narratives of the Black community’s significant contributions to local culture and industry,” says Cori Convertito, curator for the Key West Art & Historical Society. “We seek to redress a serious omission: that the substantial contributions of people of color are under-represented in our island’s historical narrative. The contributions of these skilled workers have been marginalized, when in truth, their contributions were vital and valuable.”

The opening is free to attend. This exhibition and related programming are funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Key West Art & Historical Society.
