Exclusive Sheikh Zayed Exhibition at The Galleria 05 May - 06 Jun, 2019
Abu Dhabi’s luxury shopping and dining destination will unveil a never-before-seen selection of historical moments commemorating the Founding Father of the UAE for the Year of Tolerance
The Galleria Al Maryah Island is devoting this year’s Holy Month to the Year of Tolerance with a never-before-seen photography exhibition in collaboration with the National Archive. The incredible exhibition is now open to all visitors during The Galleria’s operating hours.
The exhibition showcases a curated selection of images featuring His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan during key moments in the development of the UAE, focusing on his efforts to establish tolerance and plant the seeds of this virtue among the UAE community and residents.
Spanning more than two decades, from 1965 to 1990, the collection highlights the fundamental values the Year of Tolerance represents, such as the spirit of coexistence amongst all cultures, and enrichment of society through the promotion of tolerance through education and within the community.
Visitors can also come together at The Galleria Al Maryah Island from 8pm to 11pm during the last five days of Ramadan to enjoy complimentary family-friendly activities including henna art, children’s face painting, sand art, lantern making and more. Exclusive Eid Al Fitr themed activities will also continue throughout the first week of June. The Galleria also welcomes guests to dine for Iftar and Suhoor during the Holy Month at its award-winning selection of Dining Collection restaurants, including COYA, Zuma, La Petite Maison, Almaz by Momo and Roberto’s.
