Through ten projects and two yearly events, Riyadh Art seeks to turn the Saudi capital into a “gallery without walls” with more than 1,000 public art works dispersed around the city.

Noor Riyadh has produced one-of-a-kind joyous moments throughout the city and given millions of people the chance to admire top-notch light artworks and explore Riyadh in a fresh way. Noor Riyadh celebrated a number of accomplishments in 2022, including hosting 2.8 million guests at the festival and taking home six Guinness globe Records, one of which was for hosting the biggest exhibition of light art in the entire globe.
