Dubai International Financial Center

Last night we went to the DIFC to a dinner/meeting regarding the arts in Dubai, attended by art professors from universities around Dubai and Sharjah. We got to meet some great new people. After the dinner, we joined a mingling mass of art society types outside of an exhibition that was opening that night about photos related to the religious pilgrimage to Mecca. We sort of mingled for a half hour while everyone waited for the royal family member to arrive who was tasked with cutting the ribbon to the room where the photos were hung. We didn’t last long enough to see the show but we did get our photograph taken by a journalist who also wrote down our names on a crumpled piece of paper. I’d say to look for us in the society pages but I would be surprised if the correct section of the crumpled paper ever successfully was re-associated with the printed photograph, so it’s a long shot.
