A spokesperson said, “The Bermuda National Gallery is thrilled to announce that, thanks to the generous support of the Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club, we are offering free transport to and from the gallery for school children until April. The Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club has graciously loaned their minibus to make this program possible.

“Schools across the island are encouraged to sign up for a complimentary art tour and transportation on our website, where they can select their preferred date and time. Led by BNG Education Officer Rehana Packwood, these tours are open to students of all ages and can be tailored to align with classroom curriculum to support class studies and projects.

“This marks the third time that the Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club has lent their bus to the gallery. Last year, over 1,200 students and 100 teachers took advantage of this free transportation to visit the Bermuda National Gallery exhibition “Simplicity of Form: Unfolding Abstraction,” which featured artworks from the Green family’s private collection.”

Jennifer L. Phillips, Executive Director of the Bermuda National Gallery, expressed her gratitude, stating, “BNG has a strong focus on educational outreach, offering free student tours for all of our exhibitions. We are delighted that the Hamilton Princess has once again partnered with us on this transportation initiative to facilitate access to the gallery for schools island-wide.”

Tim Morrison, General Manager of the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, added, “We are pleased to partner with the Bermuda National Gallery for the third year to provide transport for their school art tours. Transportation is an integral part of moving our island’s children from their classrooms for school outings, and safely returned. We hope that the use of our hotel jitneys will allow more students to visit the gallery.”

The spokesperson said, “Transportation and tours are available twice a day, Monday to Friday, until April 5. Students will have the opportunity to interact with and respond to the art, and they will be provided with an activity pack to use in the gallery and take home.

“Tours are available for all four of BNG’s current exhibitions: “A Sense of Belonging: Community & Connection in Bermuda Art,” “Bermuda Wonderland” by Elizabeth Mulderig, “A Bermuda Interlude: Paintings by Owen Merton,” and “Threads Unravelling” by Gherdai Hassell.
