All day I wondered which post would come next and then I decided to browse through all those snapshots I’d taken when going somewhere and this bunch of pics popped up to grab my attention. The Abu Dhabi Art Fair Exhibition 2013.
Abu Dhabi as I had mentioned earlier is touted as the new cultural capital of Middle east. The Saadiyat island in Abu Dhabi is the new hub of cultural activity in the capital. Manaarat Al Saadiyat, the Louvre, the Guggenheim and the Zayed National Museum are all set to witness grand openings here. At this moment, I am unsure if they are already functioning but the last I’d seen personally was that it was being built as per the vision showcased within Manaarat Al Saadiyat (see here). Abu Dhabi has several islands to its name, eight of which are natural and of which, the ones showcased are; Yas, Saadiyat, Sir Bani Yas Island, Al Maryah, Reem and Delma Island. Yas Island houses the Ferrari world and Sir Bani Yas is a wildlife sanctuary for all nature lovers.
But I digress. Today’s post details my trip to one of the centers of the Abu Dhabi Art Fair 2012 located in Mushrif. There were several activities listed out for one to follow especially the kids. Activities such as ceramic painting, pottery workshops, contemporary and traditional arabic workshops were held, to name just a few. For today, I will let the pictures do the talking.
P.S: “AAA”- don’t get any ideas; just my abbreviation for Abu Dhabi Art 😉
Till we meet again,
