Once the humdrum headquarters of a major petrol company on the fringe of Rosebank, Keyes Art Mile, launched late 2016, is now one of the hottest spots in Joburg. The Trumpet building (19 Keyes Avenue) on Rosebank’s western edge, is the first of a number of new buildings planned as part of Keyes Art Mile. While Rosebank has long had an art gallery row along Jan Smuts Avenue leading into Parkwood, it has taken the imaginings of Keyes Art Mile to go beyond the gallery and bring art into the life and streets of the suburb. This art neighbourhood adds another dimension to Joburg’s growing status as an art city.
