OFID A30th Anniversary Art Exhibition


The OPEC Fund for International Development will be holding its first-ever Art Exhibition displaying works created by Fund staff members and their families. This represents just one of the special events the Fund will be holding throughout the year to commemorate its 30th Anniversary.
The Exhibition was created to pay special tribute to the Fund colleagues, whose dedication, creative talents and other contributions have helped shape the institution into what it is today. Representing 10 of the 25 nationalities that make up the Fund’s staff, the artists’ ages are also diverse – spanning from 12 to 80 years. As no boundaries were placed on the medium used, artists are able to display their favorite works, which range from paintings, sculptures and photographs to jewelry, ceramics, collages and poetry.
