This is us: Celebrating 29 Years of Freedom


Oliewenhuis Art Museum is hosting This is us, an exhibition of the Art Bank of South Africa (ArtbankSA) dedicated to the working class, those who have fought for democracy and restoration of human dignity and for those who face imprisonment by poverty.

The exhibition aims to spotlight the mundane lives of South Africans, mothers, fathers, children, and workers.

This is us: Celebrating 29 Years of Freedom can be viewed until 4 June in the Reservoir at the museum.

The art museum is located at 16 Harry Smith Street, Bloemfontein, and is open to the public from Monday to Friday between 08:00 and 17:00, and on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays between 09:00 and 16:00. Entrance is free and secured parking is available at R10 per vehicle (cash only).
