Storyline

In our post-9/11 world, a greater understanding across cultures is more important than ever before, yet the purpose of this program is not simply to provide political or historical context. Rather it is to explore and celebrate the great richness of Islamic art and architecture throughout the world to peer into extraordinary palaces and mosques, decorated with exquisite gardens, ceramics and paintings, to watch the play of light and space, and to sense the sheen of delicate textiles, of gold and silver work, and of rock crystal and precious gems.

Beautiful view of the Islamic world
14 December 2019 | by kanndvsSee all my reviews

For the first time, I want to visit the Islamic world The art is stunning, I think I knew that , but the explanation of each use of art invited me into the culture and took what fear I have away and left me with indelible memories and desire to know more about this part of the world. What an achievement. You all should be proud and consider your purpose successful. The blue, the blue. Thank you so much, Karen Davis Portland Or
