Reopening of Prince Faisal bin Fahad Fine Arts Gallery

Misk Art Reopens Prince Faisal bin Fahad Fine Arts Gallery

In 1985 and with a royal decree from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahad bin Abdulaziz, (may God have mercy on him), the gallery was established. It was then called "Fine Arts Gallery", then it was renamed to be Prince Faisal Bin Fahad Fine Arts Gallery to honor his Highness Prince Faisal bin Fahad, also known as “Prince of the Youth” and his efforts in supporting art and artists.

The Gallery was the first gallery run by the government devoted to fine arts in the capital (Riyadh), announcing with its launch the beginning of a new era in the movement of fine arts. The gallery was the main platform for the most prominent local and international art exhibitions. It is also the largest gallery in terms of space, which is around 5600 square meters dedicated for fine arts.

The Gallery was built and equipped to accommodate all kinds of art exhibitions, and because of that it witnessed the major moments of the fine arts movement in Saudi Arabia> It showcased the artworks of pioneering Saudi Artists and welcomed many great and emerging talents. Since the Hall was associated with the Model Institute of the Capital, the second floor was dedicated to showcase the work of its students.

After renovating the gallery, restoring and equipping it with a number of new facilities, Misk Art Institute reopens the hall aiming to reestablish it as a leading platform in the Saudi Art scene.
