About Jeddah Sculpture Museum

In December 2011, Abdul Latif Jameel Community Initiatives (ALJCI) teamed up with the Jeddah Municipality and the Jeddah Development and Urban Regeneration Company on a project, which serves as an exemplary model of public-private partnership, pursuing the same goal: giving the best they could to their community, in this case by beautifying the city they lived in and educating them in the beauty and culture of art.

 

Therefore, the decision was taken to restore some of the most prominent sculptures in Jeddah to their former glory and to increase their prominence by creating an open-air museum, housing 20 of these sculptures in a 7000 square metre park along the Jeddah Corniche, known locally as ‘Al Hamraa’.

 

A lot of work besides restoring the sculptures went into creating what is today the “Jeddah Sculptures Museum”, the city’s new centre of creativity, it required an underground infrastructure, and the construction of visitor facilities, as well as new bases for the sculptures.
