Sharjah, UAE: Al Noor Island, Sharjah’s picturesque eco-architectural destination is popular among the residents and tourists for its natural beauty, butterfly wonders, and unique architectural designs. And now, with the addition of ‘The Swing’ to its experiences, there is one more reason to explore the island.
Titled ‘The Swing’, a commissioned work by Emirati Artist Azza Al Qubaisi, is inspired and born out of the local culture and heritage. Shaped by seven abstract pieces of rusted mild steel and stainless steel, with Ghaf and palm tree leaves cut on them, ‘The Swing’ features immersive and sustainable art that reflects the past and the present of the UAE.
The art installation overlooking Khalid lagoon on the West shore of the island gives the visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy a wider view of the city in a calm natural setting. The work is created in collaboration with Maraya Art Centre, one of the U.A.E.’s most significant art spaces and cultural platforms.
Considered as the favorite weekend getaway spot for families, nature-lovers, and photographers, the destination from the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) is also offering special discounts, including buy two & get one offers during the summer. As a part of the current promotions, the visitors can enjoy a free entry to the butterfly house when they purchase ‘Island Self-Guided tour’ or ‘Noor Café Ticket’.For more information, please visit www.alnoorisland.ae or call 06 506 7000
