As part of its Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys grant, the Regis University Library is pleased to present Muslim Journeys through Art, an exhibit featuring three Colorado artists. Using painting (Jannah Farooque), photography (Shahidah Aleem), and traditional henna design (Amirah Aleem), these artists explore themes of belief, love, and the beauty of creation. Books on Islamic art from the library’s collection, including those provided through the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf grant, are also on display. The exhibit will be on display through November 30th in the library’s Hartman Exhibit Gallery and fireplace lounge and is open during regular library hours.
Public reception: Saturday, November 16th from 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m.
This exhibit is second in a series of programs celebrating the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys grant, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies at George Mason University and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The grant consists of 25 books, 4 films, and a year’s subscription to the Oxford Islamic Studies Online database. All resources are available at the Regis University Library.
