JEDDAH: The Nation of Honor and Dignity Exhibition, organized by the Saudi Art Association (GSFT), saw a high turnout on Saturday on the occasion of the Kingdom's 88th National Day.
GSFT Chairwoman Manal Al-Rowaished said the association works to promote Saudi fine arts and support artists by organizing exhibitions, interactive shows, workshops and cultural evenings.
"We feel that it is important for Georgetown, as a Jesuit institution and a globally active campus, to make a unilateral statement on this issue," said Jessica Lee, a representative of GSFT
, explaining why the group sought change from the administrative level.
"The project has received support from different interested parties including the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities, the Jeddah Municipality, the Saudi Art Association (GSFT
) and Saudi-Arabian culture and art association," Mohamed Bahrawi, president and founder of Arabian Wings said.
