Beauty and Belief: Crossing Bridges with the Arts of Islamic Culture Trailer
http://www.imamuseum.org/beautyandbelief

Beauty and Belief: Crossing Bridges with the Arts of Islamic Culture brings to life the story of art created in the societies fostered by Islam, including objects from the seventh century to present day. The exhibition features more than 250 objects—including calligraphy, ceramics, paintings, woodcarvings, and textiles—that not only address what defines Islamic art, but also offer an overview of Islamic culture throughout history. Pieces in the exhibition would have been used and cherished in the homes of royalty as well as those created for modest levels of society. The exhibition draws heavily from collections across the United States as well as many other countries such as Kuwait, Great Britain, France, Denmark, Morocco and Italy. Some of the artworks will be seen for the first time in the United States, and the exhibition will be the first time this range of objects can be seen in one place.
