• Abu Dhabi welcomes art, an exhibition that saw hundreds of home buyers, investors, art experts and enthusiasts visit Jubail Island’s show villas, enjoying work from more than 35 international designers

Abu Dhabi: Jubail Island and LEAD Development welcomed more than 1,200 community members, potential home buyers, investors, art and design enthusiasts to the island as it opened its 10-day ‘Art of Living’ event in the show villas.

The celebration marked the opening of the exhibition, which is curated by Architectural Digest Middle East, and hosts more than 22 projects and embodies the creativity of more than 35 creative professionals from multiple countries. The art of living event comes as a support for creativity, art and wellness by embedding them into Jubail Island’s lifestyle as part of its vision from aspiration to reality.

Guests at the event got the chance to meet the artists in person, and a special two-day celebration hosted over the weekend also saw them enjoy a magical and immersive evening focused on spiritual wellness with live music performances from a piano, handpan and saxophone, as well as live food stations, and art activations.

Running until 23rd October, members of the public still have time to visit the event in Jubail Island to discover the design and art potential within the show villas.

Developed and managed by LEAD Development, the AED10 billion Jubail Island will be home to an idyllic collection of six residential village estates located between Yas Island and Saadiyat Island.

Nestled among the mangroves’ breath-taking natural beauty and rich biodiversity and covering more than 5,000 hectares, the landmark community will offer residents every convenience and amenity, seamlessly blending sustainable living, luxury, and wellness in an iconic new addition to Abu Dhabi’s real estate landscape.
