First Thursdays at WAM

Can you believe we made it to July? Spend the first Thursday of the month at the WITS Art Museum in Braamfontein. First Thursdays at WAM is sure to become a regular feature on your monthly calendar, as an evening of jazz, fine art and books awaits you.

What Is It?

The Wits Art Museum is an artists hub in the city. Populated by students, academics and art lovers alike, this is the place to be. That’s exactly why WAM have instituted a series of First Thursdays events starting this July.  Join them on the first Thursday of the month for an evening of jazz, art and good company. Enjoy a live jazz performance while you are guided around the Leeto: A Sam Nhlengethwa Print Retrospective exhibition currently on show. The artist always listens to jazz while he works, so this is a great way to tap into the thinking and feeling behind his works. Before you leave for evening, stop by the Jack Ginsberg Centre for the Book Arts’ exhibition. This display of books will delight any kind of book lover and is a great way to round up the night.

First Thursdays at WAM is definitely one event to keep marked on your calendar. See you there!
