“Zellal Emaratia” 47th UAE National Day Art Exhibition

A shadow of UAE’s Culture

In celebration of UAE’s 47th National Day, Le Royal Méridien Abu Dhabi and The Art of Maysoon and Bassam launch “Zellal Emaratia” – A Shadow of UAE’s Culture. This Art exhibition is a reflection of the UAE tradition, heritage, spirit and culture through a unique Shadow Art experience.

During the exhibition there will be a Live shadow art installation of His Highness Sheikh Zayed and His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak.

The exhibition will also display for the very first time a unique Mural of His Highness Sheikh Zayed created by the students of Emirates National School. Students have been invited to contribute an art piece in celebration of 2018: year of Zayed. Following discussions and collaboration on the concept, the young children whilst being guided through team work were allowed free reign to express their personal messages to Sheikh Zayed 'Father of the Nation'. These thoughtful messages of thank you, prayer and quotes, although small in size, are generous in expressing through colour and language their 'Love for Zayed'.

“We are thrilled to host this exhibition working closely with The Art of Maysoon and Bassam in line with Le Méridien brands' passion towards Art. We would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the leaders of the UAE on this special occasion, a land where rich culture and traditions are mixed with innovation and prosperity.” - said Ashraf El Siessy, General Manager at Le Royal Méridien Abu Dhabi.

The Exhibition’s official opening ceremony will be on 28th November and will be open to public until 29th December 2018 from 9AM until late at Le Méridien Hub.
