An exhibition entitled ‘Oil, Steel, Style,’ opens in Port-of-Spain in Trinidad and Tobago at the National Museum and Art Gallery. This exhibition features a collection of "steelpan inspired jewellery" by Liz Mannette. It also commemorates the Steel Pan and Trinidad and Tobago's Oil industry. Information about the exhibition is provided along with photographs.

According to Val Lewis, curator, [of] [t]he National Museum Services, it is a fitting tribute to the steelpan (from the early oil drum) and to the jewellery it has inspired.

Visitors to the exhibition will be treated to an assortment of about 100 pieces featuring all the various instruments that consist of the family of pans.

‘Oil, Steel, Style,’ which is also in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the production of oil in T&T, will run at the National Museum until February 15.
