A new acquisition will arrive in our Sculpture Garden this February. Standing at seven metres in height, Yinka Shonibare CBE's "Wind Sculpture SG III" @shonibarestudio looks like a ship sail blowing in the wind, and draws inspiration from the artists interest in Dutch wax prints, colourful batik-inspired patterns that are popular in Africa but are actually exported from the Netherlands. Shonibare has described the Dutch wax print, with its rich colonial history, as the “perfect metaphor for multilayered identities.” Previous Wind Sculptures have been exhibited in New York's Central Park, and in Westminster, London. Come view the work in its new home in our Sculpture Garden.

Happy 2019! 🎉 .
.
We'd like to take this moment to reflect on how far we have come since our opening in April 2018 and thank everyone that played a role in making Norval Foundation possible. .
.
From the architects, builders and contractors who raised the structure from the ground up - to the artists, curators and gallerists who brought the exhibitions to life. .
.
We'd like to thank all our staff members, gallery assistants, waiters, barmen and security staff, each of whom played a pivotal role in where we are today. A special word of thanks must go to the Norval Family as well as our sponsors and patrons, and you who entered through our doors every day.
.
.
We stand firm in our mission to exhibit world class art from Africa and beyond, and hope to do so for many years to come. #ThankYou #Capetown #NewYear #NorvalFoundation #NorvalFamily #StonehageFleming @cocacolapenbev @dhkarchitects #WBHO #NWSQuantitysurveyors #BruceCampbellSmith

The holidays are about family, they're about fun, and about taking the time to experience something brand new! Enjoy a day out in nature and art when you bring the whole family to our museum and sculpture garden. Remember, kids under-18 always get free admission!
