Jiving with Madiba

The exhibition traces the life of Nelson Mandela from Prisoner to President to Pensioner. Art Times calls  this exhibition “visually stunning and historically important”, it is truly an inspiring romp through the first two decades of the New South Africa, as serialised in our media, by our greatest cartoonist, Jonathan Shapiro.

Visitors of all ages are leaving the exhibit touched by the contributions of Mandela and Shapiro, so different in their talent and yet both hugely influential in the shaping of the New South Africa.

The South African Jewish Museum was opened by Nelson Mandela and according to Lonely Planet “is one of the most imaginatively designed and interesting of the city’s museums”!
The museum is open Sunday-Thursday 10-5, Fridays10-2 and Closed on Saturday.
Entrance is R15, Children are free! For information call 021-465-1546.
