Art Centre Launch

The Maraya Art Park is a project that acts as a platform for regional and international outdoor art projects and will consist of a number of venues located at major focal points in Sharjah, including two sections at Al Majaz Waterfront.

The first is the Sculpture Park which showcases projects from local and international artists, designers and architects, while the second is the Children’s Art Park which aims to introduce children to the world of art through sculptures, interactive games, and educational activities.

Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal, CEO of Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), said: “Art plays an immensely important role in the cultural aspect of any nation. We remain committed to supporting arts in Sharjah in every way possible and we look forward to seeing many more exhibitions and projects.” He further added that most of Shurooq’s project will include special places for Maraya Art Park.

The new Art Park will also host a series of open air events and public programmes in collaboration with local schools and universities in the UAE to explore the work of the artist and his influences.
