Young Entrepreneur Proud To Be Part Of The Bahamian Project
The young President of Bahamas Striping, Atario Mitchell, has been chosen as one of the Bahamians to feature in the landmark portraiture collection “The Bahamian Project”, organisers have announced.
The collection of portraits—which reflects and portrays the beauty and distinct character of the Bahamian people from all walks of life—hopes to inspire the foundation of a permanent National Portrait Gallery. The project is headed by award-winning photographer Duke Wells and works in collaboration with The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas and the Popopstudios International Center for the Visual Arts
With Governor General Sir Arthur Foulkes and Lady Foulkes as patrons, the first 40 framed portraits will be unveiled as the “Bahamian Collection” at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas on July 11 as part of the NAGB’s programming for the 40th Anniversary of The Bahamas’ Independence.
Mitchell was surprised when he received a call from project manager Lisa Wells, Duke’s wife, to be chosen in a group that includes many well-known, illustrious Bahamian leaders and role models.
