In Sharjah is the Khalid Lagoon where Al Noor Island is located. Al Noor Island, which opened in 2015, is devoted to the arts where artists from around the world can showcase their work. Famed Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s Obliteration Room and Dot Obsession Infinity Room are currently on view. However, the building itself is a work of art with its wave-like undulating design and geometric lattice allowing light to stream through. The island is an artistic oasis.
