Saudi authorities unveil Year of Arabic Calligraphy mural in Al-Ahsa

RIYADH: Saudi authorities on Monday unveiled a massive mural in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province as part of the national Year of Arabic Calligraphy initiative.
The mural, which covers an area of 300 square meters along a pedestrian walkway on King Salman Road in Al-Ahsa, was inaugurated by the local mayor, Essam Al-Mulla.
The Year of Arabic Calligraphy, launched by the Ministry of Culture, aims to help improve the urban landscape through the work of visual arts and calligraphy designers and community volunteers.
The mural was created in partnership with the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs and Housing, represented by Al-Ahsa Municipality. It took three days to complete, with the help of more than 80 volunteers.
It is part of a project launched by the Ministry of Culture in August that aims to create Arabic calligraphy murals in 10 regions in the Kingdom.
