Audio-Visual: FREESTYLEE ROOTS

In 2013, Michael Thompson’s work came to the UWI Museum for the first time. In December 2017, we’re mounting Freestylee Roots, a tribute to this talented Jamaican poster artist with a global perspective.

A/V Post: Sparking Memories

Some of our best stories are sparked by visitors coming face by face with an artifact: a letter of admission for a pioneering student; a vase presented to the chapel, a bust of a university founder…
Sometimes we’re able to catch the moment or the story on video or audio or photo. Sometimes all we have is the memory of a memory.

Following Up: Who was that painter?

Who painted the landscape of the mountains behind what’s now the UWI Mona campus that we recently received as a donation? We knew he was said to be a World War 2 internee at Gibraltar Camp near Kingston, Jamaica. The signature on the painting looked like ‘V.A.Cattaneo’ – but if so, who was he?

A Week of Gifts!

It was a great week for gifts to the UWI Museum. Small gifts in some ways, but big in thoughtfulness and trust and content.
