There are many art galleries in Amman, especially in older parts of the city, such as al-Weibdeh and Jabal Amman. These galleries host contemporary artists from Jordan and other Arab countries – mostly Iraq – and showcase various contemporary arts, including painting, sculpture, and ceramics. Many Iraqi artists fled to Jordan after the American-led war and settled in the kingdom, where they now present their work. Some have started their own galleries.
