Art of the Qur'an


About

Co-created by our Art Teams, in collaboration with the Smithsonian and the Diyanet Center of America

At a time of heightened fear and suspicion towards American Muslims, our artists collaborated with the Smithsonian to create an interactive artistic experience for visitors to the historic "Art of the Qur'an" exhibit to learn about and reflect on the beauty of Islam. Inspired by the exhibit, our artists then created original art in partnership with Muslim artists within and beyond our community. We partnered with the Diyanet Center Turkish mosque to host an arts showcase that brought Muslim and non-Muslim neighbors together for conversation and trust-building.
