Pop-Up Museum a Celebration of Olympic Day

In celebration of Olympic Day last week, Newton Agency, in proud partnership with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and Fourways Mall, hosted a pop-up Olympic museum.

The museum, consisting of 4 sections highlighting different aspects of the Games’ history, also included memorabilia from some of South Africa’s greatest Olympians as well as exclusive, limited edition artworks by Olympic Legends Penny Heyns and Josia Thugwane. The Ndebele inspire design reflected the unique South African spirit as well as elements of Olympic Sports.

Olympic Day is celebrated on the 23rd June every year to commemorate the day the father of the modern Olympics, Pierre de Coubertain, founded the International Olympic Committee in 1894.
