Art museum marks 60th anniversary

2015-11-25 06:22

THE Art Museum has been part of the community of Nelson Mandela Bay for 59 years and next year it will mark its 60th anniversary on June 22.

To commemorate this momentous milestone the Art Museum is launching a series of exhibitions which will culminate in a final exhibition opening on the museum’s anniversary.

These exhibitions will explore the history of the museum’s extensive collection while paying tribute to the community of Nelson Mandela Bay who have supported us throughout our 60 years.

The current exhibition in the 60th celebration series is titled “60 Benefactors” and pays tribute to important members of the community, community organisations and art collectors who have donated significant works and expertise to help build the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum collection.

The Art Museum currently has a collection of over 6 000 artworks which are accessible to the general public through exhibitions and a new website.
