3rd Annual Juried International Exhibition of Contemporary Islamic Art

Entry Deadline: 8-22-2014
Islamic Art Revival Series (IARS) in partnership with LuminArté Gallery presents an international exhibition of contemporary Islamic art. At IARS we believe that art is a Universal Language. We are passionate about Islamic art as a translator and connector across generations and cultures. “From heart to heart, through time.” Founded in 2011 by a cross-cultural coalition of business and nonprofit leaders, students and small business owners, the Islamic Art Revival Series (IARS) includes a diverse group of women and men. We are passionate about sharing the rich cultural relevance of Islamic Art as a means of building awareness and exposure to the art itself and enhancing cross-cultural understanding among people from all walks of life. Through our Islamic Art events we promote education in the arts of the Islamic world and encourage vibrant cross-cultural exchange amongst all faiths and cultures. In doing so, we build cultural bridges between the Islamic cultures and rest of the world.
