Wits Art Museum (WAM)

Wits Art Museum had humble beginnings as a collection meant as a teaching aid at the university. Generous patronage from Norman Herber allowed the enthusiastic faculty to acquire newer works. A major donation of classical African art in 1978 set things rolling, and today, the museum has one of the finest collections of African art in the country. From modern works to historical art from all over Africa, the collection is all-encompassing to say the least. The Standard Bank African Art Collection is the focal point of the museum. Other prominent exhibits include the Wits Museum of Ethnology Collection, The Sekoto Collection and The Robert Hodgins Print Archive. The modern, purpose-built museum building has state-of-the-art facilities to preserve the works. The on-site cafe offers a selection of snacks and light bites. Check website for more.

Arts On Main

Art On Main is an art gallery that displays a number of very interesting art pieces. The creative space does more than display artwork. Artists congregate to discuss and share ideas, opinions, and thoughts, while an outdoor cinema screens film and a rooftop bar let artists, as well as customers, relax over a drink. They also have a reading room, art supplies, and bookstore and even host music concerts. Do call ahead for more details about the artists and more.

Goodman Gallery

The Goodman Gallery is situated just minutes away from the happening suburb of Rosebank, with its plethora of hotels, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Home to the works of many of South Africa's most respected artists, the gallery holds exhibitions roughly once a month, but there is quite a variety of contemporary artworks perennially on display. These range from works produced by older, well-established artists, to artworks created on the cutting edge of local culture and experience. Anyone with an interest in the fine arts would do well to pay a visit to the Goodman Gallery and have a justifiably long browse.
