An upbeat and colourful composition, Dance, portrays a group of people in a jovial mood as they dance and celebrate together. Dance is one of many ways in which people express happiness and celebration.

July marks the birthday month of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in which we will be turning 61 years of promoting and preserving Zimbabwean visual art and heritage. The National Gallery of Zimbabwe has been in existence for almost 61 years, and in its lifetime has witnessed the dramatic shift in the country from colonialism to independence. In addition, it has been central to the meteoric rise of Zimbabwean artists in the world art market.  We invite members of the public to come in and have tours of current exhibitions in the Gallery and to get to experience some of the public programmes we have on offer.
