By: Islamic Arts Society
This year we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Islamic Arts Festival. This will be our special EXTRAVAGANZA event with many special activities and art events planned around the two-day festival. Not only is this festival the largest festival of Islamic arts in North America, but it is also the only festival of Islamic Arts that has been held for consecutive 10 years.
In the past years, the festival has attracted visitors and artists from all over the United States and has also showcased some of the famous American artists in the field of Islamic Arts. In addition, the festival also provides opportunities for emerging and student artists to display their art.
Islamic Arts Society aims to share the rich heritage of Islamic Arts. The society organizes events to celebrate Islamic culture and promote the positive image of the Muslim community. Art is a common language and binds diverse communities. By promoting Islamic arts, we hope to promote mutual understanding and bring the broader American community together.
In an effort to build bridges between communities, we organize art events in libraries and museums and host Islamic art education days as well as lectures and classes in schools and colleges. The main event is the annual Islamic Arts Festival which has been held annually since 2014 and even during Covid-19 when we took the festival online. The festival brings people of all ages, ethnicities, and faiths for a weekend of fun, festivity, and learning.
During the two-day festival, visitors will have the opportunity to see the work of artists who will be available in person. They will be able to browse through our festival hall and purchase magnificent pieces of art for their homes. Visitors will also be able to take part in interactive art sessions, learn about Islamic art and culture, as well as enjoy ethnic cuisine from food trucks. In addition, there will be live demonstrations on calligraphy, henna tattoos, Ebru, painting, Arabesque pattern coloring, and lots of children's art activities.
