A Nine Mornings ‘Museum’ this year

Press release

Members of the Vincentian public will have an opportunity for the first time ever to experience the staging of an art exhibition and educational project entitled Nine Mornings Museum to be staged in Kingstown from Wednesday December 14th to Friday December 23rd.

The free public exhibition will be set up by second generation Vincentian Mr. Akili Tommasino and his wife Dr. Amanda Herrera Tommasino under the auspices of emerging non-profit organization Pana Projects. It will be held at the C.A.G. complex directly opposite the General Post Office in Kingstown.

Pana Projects was Founded in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico in 2020 by the husband and wife team. It is an arts and education initiative focused on strengthening Caribbean unity by fostering community among artists, young scholars, and lifetime learners across languages and cultures within the Caribbean. As a curator of modern and contemporary art proud to be of Vincentian heritage, Akili is eager to deliver a unique and edifying experience of contemporary art to Vincentians.

The Nine Mornings Museum will have three components:

1) Eye & Eye, an exhibition of photographs by St. Vincent-based photographer Nadia Huggins (b. 1984) and paintings by Brooklyn-based Vincentian artist Samuel Thom (b. 1954) featuring common and disparate landscapes, textures, colors and points of view.

2) A banner reproducing internationally renowned Vincentian-American artist Fred Wilson’s (b. 1954) Untitled (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines), 2009, which recasts the graphic elements of the Vincentian flag as an abstract geometric painting open to a multitude of meanings. 

3) Free daily programs throughout the duration of the project including public conversations with the artists, lectures, artmaking workshops, and a concert with local instrumentalists Organic Natural Energy.

The following schedule of programs is being confirmed:
