This is awesome!
A new museum that will house the largest collection of contemporary African art on the continent, will open in 2016 in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, it was announced last week.
The institution will be known as the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, in honor of the German art collector Jochen Zeitz, who is providing the museum’s founding collection. It will be in the historic grain silo in the waterfront district, a prime residential and commercial area and tourist hub.
The creation of the museum will be financed by the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront development project, which is contributing 500 million South African rand (about $50 million) to the transformation of the 187-foot tall grain silo, built in 1921. The architect will be announced in February.
