Dubai, UAE, 15 March – With Dubai Art Season 2017 in full swing, now is the perfect time for culture vultures and avid followers of fashion to plan a visit to the Middle East’s most exciting city. For travelers looking to immerse themselves in the heart of the city’s creative scene, The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre offers an experience like no other.
As one of Dubai’s most vibrant destinations for business, restaurants, leisure and the arts, DIFC is brimming with galleries and auction houses which come to life with art-centric events and pop-up experiences throughout the globally acclaimed season.
In celebration of the creative displays that will come to life across the city until the end of April, the luxury Dubai hotel introduces an exclusive art and culture-inspired package. Guests booking ‘For the Love of Art’ will enjoy a series of specially-created artistic touches during their stay, including the services of an exclusive Culture Concierge service to facilitate special requests and coordinate artistic experiences across the city including Dubai’s flagship cultural events, such as Design Days Dubai, Art Dubai and World Art Dubai.
Keeping its finger on the pulse, The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC has itself become a showcase for modern culture, featuring a diverse range of artworks by innovative local talent and internationally-renowned artists alike, including a rotating display of around 30 sculptures on loan and curated by Opera Gallery, DIFC. Notable pieces include an impressive three meter-long aluminum shark by French artist Mauro Corda, and Pierre Matter’s impressive ‘Evolving Falcon’, a symbolic reference to the Middle East’s most iconic bird.
Ensuring guests get the very most out of their visit during Dubai Art Season, the Culture Concierge can also arrange for guests to enjoy one of the hotel’s signature experiences - a private tour of the hotel’s collection, followed by a personal introduction to the ‘Art of Collecting Art’ with Opera Gallery’s General Manager, Sylvain Gaillard.
