IF, as the saying goes, "art is escaping without running away from home", then the Johannesburg Art Gallery is the perfect place to hide: Located on the corner of Klein and King George Streets in Joubert Park, right in the buzzing central business district of Johannesburg, the gallery comprises 15 exhibition halls and sculpture gardens.
