Drawing the Soul toward Truth explores Islamic and Hindu geometric design in their particularities and as a tool of interfaith dialog. The art in this show can facilitate new thoughts, ideas, and relationships, creating opportunities for inquiry and learning for the benefit of students, spiritual communities, and others. This online exhibition features geometric design as an expression of faith and its use in the theology, art, and history of Islam and Hinduism. This includes geometry as a tool of representation of divinity, divine communion, or unlocking the language of creation.

In partnership with the Center for Islamic Studies and the Mira and Ajay Shingal Center for Dharma Studies.
