Abu Dhabi has got a new park and it’s art-tastic!
Connecting the community through the power of art, IMKAN’s Sheikha Fatima Park is the very heart of the Khalidiya community.
The Park is unique in that not only does it provide an array of open green spaces and children’s areas in the very heart of an urban setting but also a host of cafes, restaurants and stores thanks to the place-making ethos of UAE-based real estate developer IMKAN.
Artists have also been hard at work to create artwork that clearly enhances the park’s different zones and sections through the adoption of both conventional and unconventional art.
One such artistic feature are the art murals around the five themes of ‘Spirit,’ ‘Journey,’ ‘Innovation, ‘Together’ and ‘Memory.’
Local artists collaborated with students at schools and universities in the vicinity to develop their pieces under these themes, with each artist and group of students designing to a theme based on IMKAN’s art strategy for the park.
The students involved in the collaboration process for the artworks include students of the American Community School, students of determination from Mohammed bin Rashid Center for Special Education, operated by the New England Center for Children and undergraduates from New York University Abu Dhabi, New York Institute of Technology Abu Dhabi and Zayed University.
The murals are eye catching and thought provoking and it is well worth a visit to view these works of art and we guarantee you’ll hang around.
