The Art in Secret Show is a fantastic upcoming Art Event, supporting an Art studio in Basitkiya for people with special needs. The event is structured in a social and interactive way, with all of the 100 art pieces initially anonymous, and priced the same, whether they are from an internationally renowned artist or a student from Mawaheb. We love that the focus is on the quality of the art, and not determined by the artist’s reputation! Frankly, the students do such a great job, we doubt we’ll be able to tell the difference!
When: Monday, 18 to Thursday, 21 January
Where: Showcase Gallery, Unit 35, Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz, Dubai, UAE
How much: Fantastic art pieces for AED 500
