The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum will be hosting art workshops for children during the July school holidays to celebrate Mandela Month.
The exhibition, THE ART MUSEUM IS A MEETING PLACE, pays tribute to the role of the Art Museum as a conduit for people, art and ideas to meet. The exhibition shows how artists use their talent to tell stories about the world around them.
