Johannesburg Art Gallery houses paintings from the 17th century to the present age, including Dutch, British, European, South African and Contemporary collections, displaying the cultural diversity. \nAnother landmark is the Fitzgerald Square surrounded by structures, including the ‘struggle theatre’ which was noteworthy during the struggle against apartheid. The art of sculpture making and murals is highly encouraged at places like Vilakazi Street Sculptures. Drama, opera and ballet are flourishing at an unimaginable rate in the city. The city has also hosted premier music festivals of the artists like Jhonny Clegg, Kongos and much more.
