A SPECIAL exhibition inspired by the ground-breaking novel, The Alchemist, will be held tonight.
The ‘Inspired by Literature’ exhibition is an innovative approach which merges literature and the visual arts.
It is the outcome of over 20 artists’ experiences in the revival of characters from literary works and manifesting them into their own works of art.
Held by We All Read society, in co-operation with the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities, the event begins at 7pm at Studio 244, Arad Bay Protected Area and Park.
