Wondrous Worlds: Art and Islam Through Time and Place- USA

Wondrous Worlds: Art & Islam Through Time & Place is the first exhibition on art and Islam at Phoenix, Arizona’s Art Museum, in more than two decades. Organized by the Newark Museum, the exhibition showcases more than 100 works of art from around the world and spanning a millennium and includes calligraphy, textiles, jewelry, paintings, clothing, musical instruments, and more. Unlike previous national and international exhibitions on art and Islam, Wondrous Worlds is organized around the Five Pillars of Islam rather than geography, time period, or material. Objects on view range from religious to recreational items and were created in the tradition of Islam by both Muslim and non-Muslim artists. Along with traditional examples, the exhibition also features contemporary works to illustrate the living legacy of art and Islam.

On view through May 26, 2019. For more information: http://www.phxart.org/exhibition/Wond…
