Riyadh Art: Bringing Out the Artistic Side of the Capital



One of the Kingdom’s 2030 goals is for the capital to be known for its art, and with Saudi Arabia’s cultural revolution beginning in earnest, the hope for that aim to become true is definitely increasing.

Just last month, King Salman launched new four projects for the capital, these projects included one known as Riyadh Art, which serves the purpose of the Capital becoming an artistic hub.

The project is expected to feature the distribution of more than 1,000 art piece across public spaces in the city, by the end of 2023.

Edward Gibbs, Sotheby’s chairman for the Middle East and India, says that Saudi Arabia “has a rich archaeological, architectural and cultural history, as well as an increasingly dynamic contemporary art scene,”

“Pioneering projects such as … the open-air Sculpture Museum in Jeddah paved the way by showing the tangible social benefits of displaying contemporary art in an urban setting,” he added.

“Riyadh Art is an exciting new initiative which promises to promote new dialogues, forging conversations between the next generation of Saudi artists and the wider community,” he said.

These artworks will be created through 10 main programs that cover: Residential neighborhoods, gardens and parks, public squares, public transit stations, traffic and pedestrians bridges, and all tourism destinations across the city.

In doing so, the project is contributing at strengthening the cultural and artistic aspects of the city, and that in return will improve the quality of life in Riyadh which is basically the main aim of the 2030 Vision. The project also hopes to position the city as an international destination and a go to place that combines between both modernity and authenticity.

We certainly can’t wait to see the artistic and creative perspectives that Riyadh Art is expected to be bringing to the capital, in addition to other centers of creativity in the Kingdom.

After my epic swim in the Devil’s Pool, I asked the guides if they could help me find a good vantage point to view Victoria Falls. It’s 108m high at the center, and the power and majesty of the Falls is incredible. The more I explore it, the more I appreciate why it was originally called Mosi-oa-Tunya, "The Smoke That Thunders," in Lozi. Despite how beautiful everything was, by far the most beautiful thing was the kindness and hospitality of the Zambian people, including the staff from @royallivingstone_anantara. I cannot imagine experiencing this with anyone better! #shotoniphone11pro #zambia #travel #adventure #worldnomad #victoriafalls بعد السباحة الملحمية في ديفلز بول، سألت المرشدين إن كان بوسعهم مساعدتي في العثور على نقطة مراقبة جيدة لمشاهدة شلالات فيكتوريا. تُعدّ تلك الشلالات بارتفاعها البالغ 108 أمتار في الوسط، فضلًا عن قوتها ومهابتها أمرًا مذهلًا. وكلما استكشفتها، زاد تقديري لسبب تسميتها بالأصل موزي أو تونيا، "الدخان المرعد" في لوزي. على الرغم من مدى روعة كل شيء، كان أجمل شيء إلى حد ما هو لطف الشعب الزامبي وكرم ضيافته، بما في ذلك الموظفون في رويال ليفينجستون-أنانتارا royallivingstone_anantara@. لا أستطيع أن أتخيل هذه التجربة مع أي شخص أفضل.
