Dubai completes second 140-metre Zayed mural

DUBAI, August 6, 2018

The Cultural Office of Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in Dubai, UAE has announced the completion of the second edition of the 140-metre ‘Al Ydar’ mural, launched this year in line with the ‘Year of Zayed’.

The artwork has been created in collaboration with Zayed University in Dubai and with the support of Dubai Women Establishment (DWE). The mural, which will be displayed for a year on the outer wall of Dubai Ladies Club in Jumeirah, features various works of art exploring the journey and achievements of the late Sheikh Zayed.

Twenty-two female students from the College of Arts and Creative Enterprises at Zayed University in Dubai were involved in the ‘Al Ydar’ initiative. The project was launched by Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, president of Dubai Women Establishment and the UAE Gender Balance Council, and wife of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, to mark 100 years since the birth of the UAE’s Founding Father, and to celebrate the ‘Year of Zayed’.

The mural’s artwork conveys four main themes, inspired by the nation’s Founding Father’s values and interests – wisdom, respect, sustainability and human development. – TradeArabia News Service
