Support for the Arts

“The soul requires the nutriment both of religious experience and of the arts… In thinking of the nutriment derived from the arts, I should like to quote Pablo Picasso. He said ‘Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life’.” – Sir Courtney Newlands Blackman, founding Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados.
