A Bahamian delegation headed by master artist Antonius Roberts left for Camaguey, Cuba earlier this week to take part in a special presentation.

Some of Roberts’ work, which highlights the wonders of The Bahamas, its nature and people, will be donated to the Oncological Hospital and to the Pediatric Hospital of the City of Camaguey.

The pieces were selected from a Bahamian/Cuban art exhibition at the Art Gallery “Larios” in Camaguey, Cuba, which also featured the works of Heino Schmid and John Cox.

The event is part of a cultural interchange that began last October with the celebration of Cuba’s Day of Culture in Nassau, and continued with the joint exhibition in February 2013.

“The exchange is intended to strengthen and develop the socio-cultural links between The Bahamas and Cuba, something that will definitely contribute to enrich, not only the cultural arena, but also the people to people ties between our two nations,” according to a press release to announce the donation.

Roberts’ delegation includes a group of prominent Bahamian citizens, among them Sir Durward Knowles.
