Addicted to Art

With time, I have found myself diving deeper and deeper into the world of art and being continuously fascinated by it. This year, I had the opportunity to visit one of the largest art exhibitions organized in the region - Art Dubai 2011.

The 5th annual Art Dubai is taking place in Madinat Jumeira from March 15-19, where the space has been transformed into a 'vast museum of artwork'. Over 500 artists representing 81 galleries and from 34 countries come together to share their creativity with one another and the public. In addition to the artwork, forums and workshops are also scheduled to take place throughout the four days of the event. To view the complete schedule of events, click here

Although Art Dubai is commercial,  the organized workshops make it educational, and forums inspirational. Art Dubai gives visitors the chance to attend talks, be part of discussions, purchase affordable art, see installations, and take an 'Art Bus' tour around Dubai. 

I think this is more than enough to know that anyone who has even a slight interest in art should not miss out on such a grand event. Art Dubai only gets bigger and better with each year, so if you were unable to attend this year, you will, without a doubt, have something finer to look forward to next year!
