The Anton Smit Sculpture Park, a unique outdoor exhibition that is a short 40-minute drive from Pretoria and 1-hour from Joburg. Artist Anton Smit developed the garden as a destination of creativity to court visiting tourists and art lovers and collectors both locally and internationally.
The Sculpture Park’s three-hectare grounds are situated on the northern side of the Bronkhorstspruit Dam overlooking the water. Amongst the backdrop of natural stone, formations, manicured lawns and succulent gardens, the garden provides a lovely environment to view the expansive collection of monumental sculptures and exhibitions, it includes Art Café, a full service coffee shop.
Smit’s work has been exhibited and lauded internationally in places as diverse as Rome and Milan, Italy (1991), the Sweeguan Art Gallery in Singapore (1993), Bonn and Wolfsburg in Germany (1994), the SA Embassy in Bonn (1998), Amsterdam (2004) and Cologne (2014).
