Established in 1996, the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands (NGCI) is a vibrant arts organisation that seeks to fulfil its mission through exhibitions, artist residencies, education/outreach programmes, and research projects.

The NGCI operates in both a local and global arena. As part of our mission to “promote and encourage the appreciation and practice of the visual arts, of and in the Cayman Islands” we send Caymanian art and artists abroad as well as having many fine international artists visit, exhibit, and work in the Cayman Islands.
