Saudi art

A semi-hidden museum in the middle of the Dutch capital dedicated to Saudi art. As odd as this may seem it does exist. The museum is very popular over the web, but visits in person are very rare. The gallery features modern art as well as some aged pieces. They are all Saudi related.

On the sixth floor of an office building in the center of the Dutch capital, Amsterdam is a small gallery dedicated to Saudi art.
Greenbox has one million followers on Facebook, making it the most popular Dutch museum online, and it was founded by Dutch man Aarnout Helb.
Despite the museumís online popularity he says visitors in person are rare.
He said his inspiration for founding the museum was to stamp out the Islamophobia he believed was rife in The Netherlands following the 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers and the assassination of a Dutch filmmaker and journalist, Theo Van Gogh.
