The D’Aguilar Art Foundation, launched in 2008, is the culmination of Vincent D’Aguilar’s vision for Bahamian art. One of the most comprehensive privately held art collections in The Bahamas, the Foundation is an educational resource for artists, scholars, collectors, students and the general public. Operating out of a multi-functional exhibition, educational and archival space, we strive to involve members of the public in the ideas and discourse of Bahamian artists.
