Big Brothers Big Sisters tour National Gallery

Teamwork allowed a group to solve a floor puzzle in a single session.

More than 30 participants from Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands toured the National Gallery last month to learn about the temporary exhibition “Speak to Me – Understanding the Language of Art.”

On the tour, led by National Gallery intern Jessica Ebanks, the visitors got a hands-on experience at the exhibition.

Making the visit particularly memorable, they were the first group to solve the exhibition’s large installation puzzle by Aston Ebanks in one session, according to a press release.

The exhibition, which runs until Jan. 12, features art as a language and the visual “dialects” that range from paintings of the past to avant-garde and artificial intelligence.

Works in the exhibition come from private and public collections, and artists who created new works for the exhibition include Wray Banker, Randy Cholette, Nasaria Suckoo-Cholette, Pippa Ridley, Simon Tatum and William Verhoeven.

Working together the group was able to solve the giant floor puzzle.
