Poetic Voices of the Muslim World

Free admission (all visitors, all hours)

Just as American movies are used by cultures abroad to understand our own society, Poetic Voices of the Muslim World proposes poetry as a lens through which we can view Muslim cultures. From traditional Qur’anic verses to modern day American Idol-esque TV shows featuring verse instead of song, poetry is arguably the most influential art form in many Muslim cultures. Mixing poetic verses and artwork influenced by Islamic poetry, Poetic Voices of the Muslim World was designed to help Western viewers imagine looking at the world through poetry and discover an understanding that goes deeper than facts.
