Kuru Art Center and Museum, D’Kar

(June 20)

Today, to break up our long journey, we stopped at Kuru Art Center and Museum in D’Kar. It was about half way. When parking, we got stuck in the loose sand, but I (Anna) managed to get out. Good choice to get a 4WD.

There are currently 20 artists at the art center. All from D’Kar. Some are said to be displayed at the Smithsonian.

We were shown around the center, there was one artist at work. Some of the paintings were prices at 20 000 Pula (about the same in SEK). Alex said he would not pay for them.

The small museum showed the life and history of the San people. A little, but informative museum.

This place was sort of in the middle of nowhere.
