It was previously stated under the kingdom’s vision for the year 2030, which aims to significantly improve the lives of the citizens, to transform the city into an attractive destination making it the world’s most livable place.

Riyadh Municipality events were launched earlier this month on April 10. “The Beautifying Riyadh’s Murals” event aims to beautify the city’s public spaces in two phases. The first phase will start with the volunteers removing the distorted scriptures off of the city’s walls, while the second phase will consist of covering the kingdom’s walls with murals painted by famous Saudi artists.

The Committee of Fine Arts and Arab Calligraphy has already begun its campaign to beautify Makkah Road, in the middle of Sakaka City. Artists from Al-Jouf area started to paint a big mural under its guardianship, as part of the agreement signed between Al-Jouf municipality and the Saudi Arabia Society for Culture and Art.

Khaled bin Abdulrahman Al-Issa, the Director of Culture and Arts in Al-Jouf area said, “the aim of the mural is to expose and show the cultural, historical, touristic as well as agricultural marks, in addition to the artifacts of Al-Jouf.”
