Carlos Museum at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia became a hub of Islamic calligraphic exploration. The Museum presented two complementary exhibitions that explored calligraphy in an interactive context.

The two exhibitions titled Traces of the Calligrapher: Islamic Calligraphy in Practice, c. 1600-1900 and Writing the Word of God: Calligraphy and the Qur’an examined the major developments that took place in art and calligraphy from the 7th – 15th centuries. The exhibitions were attended by academics, artists, people of various faiths, and members of the Jamat from across the Southeastern United States.
