Hotels obligated to acquire artworks of Saudi artists
The Ministry of Culture (MoC) has obligated the hotels in the Kingdom to acquire the artworks and paintings of Saudi artists.
MoC's obligation came during adding new standards within the regulation of hospitality facilities represented by the inclusion of cultural experiences and local arts in them.
Through this step, the MoC aims in strengthening and enriching the various cultural programs, such as culinary arts, heritage, artistic and musical works, which comes as part of efforts of enhancing the culture and arts in different sectors.
The MoC's initiative in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism would contribute in creating development opportunities for diverse talents in the cultural sector, and enrich the visitors experience in hotels.
It would also strengthen the presence of culture in hospitality facilities by participating in creating an authentic cultural experience that is closely related with the culture and heritage of Saudi Arabia.
It will also promote the presence of local artistic production and the artworks of the Saudi artists, in addition to providing a list of local heritage foods which reflect each Saudi region.
Moreover, it will develop the cultural hotels to highlight the local culture as included in the regulations of hospitality facilities.
