THE WINTER SCULPTURE FAIR PROMISES THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF ART, FOOD AND WINE.
4-5 May 2013
The 2013 Winter Sculpture Fair presented by MasterCard takes place at the NIROX Sculpture Park near the Cradle of Humankind, on the outskirts of Johannesburg and Pretoria.
A showcase of some of South Africa’s best contemporary art, combined with the finest food and wine from the Franschhoek wine valley in the Western Cape, the Fair promises visitors an unmatched culinary and cultural day out in the country with friends and family.
Visitors can meander through the beautifully landscaped park, taking in the sculptures of the ‘After the Rainbow Nation: 2013’ exhibition. One can also purchase a variety of cheeses, charcuterie, wines, and chocolates from leading Franschhoek producers at the Fair’s country market, just in time for winter, while a separate up-market retail area will give them the opportunity to buy exclusive whiskies, scarves, handbags, books, teas and more.
MasterCard cardholders enjoy 10% off the ticket price and all produce purchased at the event when using their MasterCard cards. In addition, invitations are extended via the cardholder’s bank to restricted access experiences
