Jumeirah Creekside Hotel hosts ‘marine life’ art exhibition by Kevin McHugh
Dubai, 02 November 2015: Jumeirah Creekside Hotel has announced its latest art exhibition by Kevin McHugh, a renowned New York artist and conservationist.
McHugh has successfully merged his interest in marine life and passion for conservation into one-of-a-kind pioneering sculptures and will exhibit his art works at the hotel until 1 December. The pieces are designed to help change the way people perceive the notion of ‘trophy fish’ by transforming the idea into stunning works of art. The custom fiberglass pieces are meticulously encrusted with Swarovski crystals. McHugh donates a part of the money from works sold to marine research and conservation organisations.
Jumeirah Creekside Hotel is also home to a specially commissioned art collection which connects the property to the region’s vibrant art and cultural heritage. A selection of Middle Eastern contemporary art is playfully arranged throughout the hotel, enabling guests to discover different sculptures and paintings through a series of chance encounters. Comprising 482 works by 51 contemporary artists, the exhibition also includes videos, limited edition series and mixed media works.
