The vision of Legacy Art when it started in 2007 was to promote art from highly talented Emerging Artists from the region including South Asia. Given the diversity of Dubai and its residents, the organization developed over time to become a “Platform for Emerging Art & Artists” from all over the World to showcase their art and connect to the art lovers residing in Dubai, UAE and rest of the region.
Legacy as part of its commitment to the art fraternity expanded its scope to include Corporate Leasing of Art, Project based commissioning etc., whilst retaining its base model of buying art upfront from emerging artists and then showcasing the same through various channels and events.
Legacy Arts & Events is proud of its working model where the organization has frequently funded artists to encourage them to pursue their talent and produce remarkable pieces of art which can reach their deserved audience.
