Publisher's description: Mohamed Said Farsi became Mayor of Jeddah in 1972 and rejuvenated the city with public art at its heart. The resulting--and unprecedented -- urban landscape is now enriched by a diversity of works from world-famous artists, such as Arp, Cesar, Calder, Lipschitz, Miro, Moore, Pomodoro, and Vasarely, as well as regional artists including Salah Abdulkarim and Shafiq Mazloum. This book shows Saudi Arabia as a place of artistic vision and innovation and allows a glimpse into a city not easily visited. Jeddah has grown since 1972 and now some 53 major pieces are being restored and relocated to the sea front, known as the Corniche.
