King Faisal Exhibit Shahed Wa Shaheed

King Faisal Exhibit Shahed Wa Shaheed

This temporary exhibit was designed as a temporary exhibit to last for a period of three to five exhibits, starting at the National Museum in Riyadh and touring to both east and west coasts in Dammam and Jeddah.  The concept of the exhibits starts with The Young Prince and proceeds to grow in height in parallel to the growth in his political career.  The exhibit is then abruptly interrupted with the sharp, tragic and sudden event of the death of King Faisal.  A short film at the end of the exhibit brings his charisma and integrity to life as it shows one of his speeches, where he refers to the Palestinian issue, and highlights his determination to return and pray there in the third of the holiest mosques in Islam.  This exhibit has now toured more than thirty locations within the Kingdom, and is still on tour today with a unique and wonderful collection of objects and photographs.
