About The African Carousel at Oliewenhuis

The Oliewenhuis Museum’s Colourful Carousel sprung from the desire to have a public sculpture that involved a number of different artists working with unusual materials. This initiative involved artists from all over South Africa, and sought to combine the African mythology that characterises this culture with a European concept of mythology.

This project began in 1994 and was finished in 1997. Significant donations were received by The Department of Arts, Culture, Science and Technology, The Foundation for the Creative Arts, The Friends of Oliewenhuis Art Museum, and the Art and Culture Trust, amongst others. In addition to being a work of art, the carousel is about fun. It invites children to play on and explore it, removing the stigma of “untouchable art” and encouraging them to be a part of the sculpture.
