Art Route

If art started anywhere, it started right here in Mossel Bay. 164,000 years ago.

According the scientists of the SACP4 Project*, this is where humankind first began using the pigment ochre - possibly for symboling and colouring - which puts Mossel Bay as the very birthplace of culture. 

These days, of course, the people of Mossel Bay love every kind of art – the visual, musical, and performance arts all.

The object of this site is to seek out – and point you towards - all the best in the arts in Mossel Bay. And we’ll be creating new posts whenever we find these treasures. So please come back regularly!
