We always have a staff retreat day to prepare ourselves for a busy period. Since our end of the year is always so tedious, today was the perfect day to go on our staff retreat. And the absolutely perfect place was Nike Art Gallery, off Lekki Expressway at Elegushi. We had an unbelievably wonderful time; it is a feast for the eyes. Even if you are not an art lover Nike Art Gallery is one place that every Nigerian should visit. The amount of talent in those four floors of wonders will make everyone feel creative.
It is pleasantly surprising how sophisticated and cultured our art is, we were awed at the sheer volume and impressed with the variety. There were old masters, well known contemporary, new and vibrant youngsters, male and female, and every medium available. Not to mention that Nike Art Gallery boasts one of the largest collections of very old and valuable fabric, handcrafted and authentic. Outdoor is an array of modern outdoor art made from old tyres, metal drums, and a collection of reclaimed everyday items skillfully crafted into art. ‘Creativity on steroids’ is the phrase that comes to mind here. You cannot come to Lagos and not stop over at Nike Art Gallery, it is an art paradise.
We thank Merit our Admin Manager and her Staff Retreat Planning Committee for a brilliant job well done! We are so totally ready to take on the rest of the year!
