Around our beautiful campus and community you’ll find a wealth of wonderful outdoor artworks. These works enrich our everyday lives and bring colour and interest to the spaces we work, share and recreate in.
This artwork in our community is the result of KAUST ART, an extensive program of artwork commissions that enhances our public spaces with urban art projects intended to stimulate creativity and interaction.
Hani Itani, University Architect within the University Projects Department and Martina Viglasska of the University Support Services will present lectures and walking tours full of fascinating insight into the KAUST ART project and the artworks in our campus and community.
This event features two independant sessions, a morning and an afternoon session. Both sessions feature a 20-minute presentation followed by a guided tour on campus.
A breakfast will be provided during this tour.
This event is brought to you by the Office of Enrichment Programs in collaboration with University Support Services.
This event has limited seating. If you register and cannot make this event, please be sure to 'Unregister' so someone else can take your place.
