Dubai, UAE – octOpus got creative with one of its latest productions. The company successfully put together the exhibition for the “Selah” Art Program – the year-long art program that seizes the opportunity of the therapeutic effect of art to help orphans ‘connect’ to their creative spirit.  The exhibit was showcased in an artistic display at the Dubai Mall.

The exhibit was created to be a work of art on its own. The stand was so elegantly shaped walls and roof make the word “Selah”, which means ‘connection’. So that it illuminates when viewed from the upper floors of Dubai Mall, showing that with its simple and elegant design still conveyed a powerful message. However, it was more important that the children’s artworks took center stage so a minimalist approach with clean white walls was a key design element.

The Selah  Art  Program is an initiative of Her  Highness  Sheikha  Manal  bint Mohammed  bin  Rashid  Al  Maktoum, President of Dubai Women Establishment, wife  of  HH  Sheikh  Mansour  bin  Zayed Al  Nahyan,  Deputy  Prime  Minister  and Minister  of  Presidential  Affairs,  UAE; in  partnership  with  ‘The  UAE  Initiative for Connection with Orphans and Minors’; and was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and  Ruler  of  Dubai.
