Description

40 years ago, Jeddah mayor Mohamed Said Farsi transformed his city through an urban development scheme that placed contemporary art at its core. This was public art on a grand scale, designed 'to bring delight to the citizen, to give a sense of wonder and stir a sense of history'. Works were commissioned from the world's greatest sculptors and this book documents the restoration and relocation of some 26 major works to a new Open Air Museum. It allows the world a unique glimpse into a city not easily visited and shows Saudi Arabia as a place of vision and innovation in art.
