Children’s Holiday Workshops 

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.
