Bermuda Art Center
The Bermuda Arts Center was setup in 1984. It was initially serving as a forum to the contemporary artists of Bermuda.
Art and handicrafts section of the Bermuda Arts Center started in April 1987. It was then known as the Bermuda Craft Market which still exists separately.
It was opened in the Cooperage building in Dockyard as a retail venue and specifically designed to showcase locally-made crafts such as cedar work and jewelry. It was like a rustic marketplace with wooden barrels and other displays.
