This is a unique Kingston experience that combines street art with a gallery exploration and a walking tour! We will meet at a beautiful, centrally located park, where we'll inspect a major and controversial piece of public Jamaican art. We'll then take a car to downtown Kingston to be surrounded by vibrant street art and talk about art with members of a community-run NGO. We'll head over to the National Gallery to discuss local art themes from pre-Columbian times to the present. Grabbing lunch on the go, we'll walk down one of the bustling streets of downtown with music blasting, vendors hawking, and the community mixing. On this walk, you will feel the pulse of the city and truly connect with Kingston. We'll then head back to Emancipation Park and finish up our experience.
I'm a writer, art collector, guide, and enthusiastic supporter of all things artistic. My travels have taken me all around the world but my heart will always reside in Jamaica, my home. I love connecting with guests through the exploration of the creative and cultural sides of Jamaica and have been doing trips for close to 10 years.
Water I will provide water for our trip.
Car transportation I will provide transportation free of charge.
We'll meet at a city park with sculptures, flowers, and birds. We will proceed to Parade Gardens, a neighborhood in downtown Kingston that sports amazing street art. After an inspiring stroll through the community, we will go to the National Gallery and I will provide you with an in-depth visit of the art located there. Finally, we'll take a walk in the heart of downtown on Orange Street to soak up the vibe of the city.
Bring a camera, sunscreen, insect repellent, and bottled water. Wear comfortable shoes.
