Johannesburg Art GalleryJohannesburg
A short distance from Constiutional Hill is the Johannesburg Art Gallery. The gallery showcases a collection of 17th, 18th and 19th century British and European art, 19th century South African works, and a large contemporary collection of 20th century local and international art. Recently JAG has sought to aquire more art works from local contemporary artists, giving the gallery a uniquely South African feel.
The building was designed by Edward Lutyens and with 15 exhibition halls and sculpture gardens there is plenty to browse. The gallery forms part of the inner city rejuvenation programs, specifically the Joubert Park Public Art Project.
