The next time you head to a parking meter in Dubai, you may be in for an artistic surprise. Around 100 parking meters in Jumeirah, Dubai Media City and Al Mustaqbal Street have come alive with 15 artworks inspired by the themes of diversity and tolerance.
Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office, announced that it is partnering with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to launch a project to creatively revitalise parking spaces in key areas of Dubai.
The project supports the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, of transforming the city into an open-air museum that enhances the city's aesthetic environment.
Executed in collaboration with six Emirati and expatriate artists, the project is part of Brand Dubaiís efforts to enhance the creative ambience of public spaces in Dubai and initiate new connections with the community through art. Emirati artists contributing to the project include Reem Al Marri, Issa Al Noaimi, and Sheikha Fekri. The Dubai-based expatriate artists taking part in the project include Ari Puguh, Dina Sami and Rosanna Lamo-Villanueva.
