A collaboration between American Express and Artlogic, together with Franschhoek Tourism and Nirox Sculpture Park, comes to life from the 11-12 May 2019. The 7th edition of the American Express Winter Sculpture Fair is made possible through a partnership, whose collective expertise has crafted a novel experience that marries three lifestyle areas; food, wine and sculpture.
On the 11th and 12th of May, guests are invited to journey out to the Cradle of Humankind for an enchanting escape from city life. There they will be able to sample some of the best food and wine in the country, all the while being wrapped in the wonder of sculpture that adorns the breath-taking landscape of Nirox Sculpture Park.
“We are strongly aligned with American Express in crafting quality lifestyle experiences that add value to people’s lives. Together, we strive to open up channels of access to the arts, as well as an opportunity to engage personally with seasoned South African Chefs and vignerons; something that is completely unique to this event," says Cassandra Twala, Fair Curator, Artlogic.
“We are once again delighted to be the headline sponsor of an event that brings families together in a unique and beautiful setting to celebrate art and lifestyle, aspects that are cornerstones of the American Express brand. The American Express Winter Sculpture Fair remains one of the most exciting dates on the annual calendar and we look forward to, once again, welcoming our American Express cardmembers to a taste of Franschhoek in the Nirox sculpture gardens. For the second year running Amex Cardmembers will benefit from exclusive offers, secret benefits and VIP experiences for the whole family,” explains Chris Wood, Head of American Express South Africa.
The 7th edition sees top chefs and winemakers from the Franschhoek Valley bringing culinary mastery and craftsmanship to Johannesburg. The likes of Rupert & Rothschild, Plaisir de Merle, The Werf Restaurant, Babylonstoren and Glenwood Estate will be joining us at this year’s Fair. All vendors will accept Masterpass mobile payments, designed to make the customer experience simple, secure and hassle free.
