More Than A Literary Festival

Festival Art

From 2011 to 2013, the NGC Bocas Lit Fest invited artists to create original limited edition works of art. The first numbered piece in each edition became part of the unique Collection of Festival Art of the National Museum and Art Gallery, the sponsor of the work.

The works commissioned by the festival are: Give and Take, by Chris Ofili (2011);   Mercury, by Nikolai Noel (2012); and Transmission by Wendy Nanan (2013). These editions are still available for sale at TT$3,000. Funds raised from the sale of the signed, numbered works go to the NGC Bocas Lit Fest, which is entirely funded by sponsorship.

And marking 10 years of the Bocas Lit Fest, our anniversary poster depicts Jackie Hinkson’s specially commissioned drawing of the iconic Old Fire Station in downtown Port of Spain, buttressed by the National Library, the home of the NGC Bocas Lit Fest. 100 numbered, signed copies of this collectible poster are available at TT$300.00. 

To enquire about making a purchase, please email us at [email protected]. Unfortunately, we can’t facilitate shipping or delivery of these fragile, valuable works of art at this time, but you can collect at The Writers Centre, 14 Alcazar Street, St. Clair, Port of Spain.
