THE LONG MARCH TO FREEDOM IS MOVING TO CENTURY CITY, CAPE TOWN
The Directors of the National Heritage Project Company, owners of the Long March to Freedom, have announced that the procession of life-size bronzes celebrating South African icons will be exhibited at a dedicated venue in Century City, Cape Town, from November 2019.
The Long March to Freedom has been on exhibition at Maropeng, official Visitor Centre of the Cradle of Humankind, since January 2019, where it has enjoyed much positive public acclaim. The move to Cape Town is part of the project’s commitment to exposing as many South African’s as possible to this unique exhibition which presents the diverse history of their country through the lives of specific individuals. A one-of-a-kind concept, it is also the largest exhibition of representative bronze artworks anywhere in the world.
Over the past 8 years, the Long March to Freedom has enriched the lives of many 1000’s of people, from the artists, foundries and trainees who worked on bronzes, to the school children who have never before had the opportunity to fully experience their own history and heritage, and the domestic and foreign tourists. The exhibition will depart for Cape Town by mid-October 2019 and the project Directors express their deep gratitude to the management of the Maropeng Visitor Centre, the Cradle of Humankind and the people of Gauteng for their unwavering support.
