The National Gallery of Zimbabwe (NGZ) is a gallery in Harare, Zimbabwe, dedicated to the presentation and conservation of Zimbabwes contemporary art and visual heritage. The Original "National Gallery of Rhodesia" was designed and directed by Frank McEwen, a British citizen credited with bringing Shona Sculpture to the spotlight . The Gallery was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother on the 16th July 1957 and Queen Elizabeth II attended the sixth Zimbabwe Heritage Exhibition there in October 1991.
The National Gallery in Bulawayo is a branch of the NGZ in Zimbabwe's second city, Bulawayo. It was located for some years in an old market building behind City Hall, but since 1993 has occupied Douslin House on Main Street, an elegant two-storey building of 1901. Directors of the National Gallery in Bulawayo include Stephen Williams, Yvonne Vera and Addelis Sibutha.
