The Art and Archeology Exhibition for the Festival will feature two distinct elements. The first, “The Arabian Horse through the Eyes of the World’ will feature three of the world’s greatest contemporary artists whose subject is the Arabian horse in painting, sculpture and photography. The second element, reflecting the Seminar theme of “Where it All Began” will focus on photographs of the fascinating rock art of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which features the Arabian horse. This exhibit will combine photographic images of this ancient with modern images of Arabian horses, demonstrating the compelling connection and continuity between past and present.
