Reverberating Echoes: Contemporary Art Inspired by Traditional Islamic Art

Tuesday, January 31st 2017 to Friday, May 26th 2017

This timely exhibition highlighted the work of seven American artists of diverse backgrounds who draw inspiration from Islamic visual heritage. Through their artwork, these artists – Muslim and non-Muslim, women and men, residing in Blue states or Red states – reminded us of the beauty and meaning that we can find by reaching across borders of religion and culture.
