The Long March to Freedom

The largest exhibition of its kind anywhere in the world, The Long March to Freedom features 100 life-size bronze sculptures that include both famous figures from South Africa’s struggle years, as well as those who are less well known. Join the journey to freedom as you walk through these bronzes, following each person’s story. From early Khoi leaders like Doman and Autshumato to Zulu King Shaka, all the way through to the inspirational heroes who sacrificed so much in the struggle against Apartheid. This monolithic memorial is not to be missed! Tickets may be purchased at the entrance gate on the corner of Century City Drive and Century Boulevard.


Anton Smit Open Air Exhibition

Three ballerinas en pointe, backs arched, heads to the sky… Two crouching men, self-grossed, back to back… An enormous female face, staring into the future…

This 30-piece collection is spread out in public areas around the Century City, especially in and around the Urban Square. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to encounter the raw, earthy, unmistakably African power of Smit’s work, free of charge.
