We can hardly believe it’s been five years since the Museum first opened its doors! Establishing North America’s first museum dedicated to Islamic art was, of course, no easy task — it required the work of hundreds of community members, staff, partners, patrons, volunteers, and Friends, along with the support of our visitors.
Since we opened on September 18, 2014, visitors have come to the Museum to connect with new and familiar communities, to learn about the world, and to better understand our shared humanity — all through the power of the arts. As we look ahead to the next five years and beyond, we will remain passionate about connecting cultures, continuing to bring you the highest-caliber of exhibitions, artists, musicians, dancers, actors, scholars, and thinkers from around the globe.
