In February and March, Utah Cultural Celebration Center and Utah Humanities Council are holding a series of discussions, readings, movies, and exhibits to share the addition of the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf to several libraries in Utah. Yesterday, Michael Christensen (folklorist at the Center and exhibits curator) and I set up an exhibit of several sculptures from the 99 Names project series, and I’ll be speaking a number of times during the next few months about my experiences as a Christian learning about Islam, Muslims, and Islamic art, and they asked me to also introduce one of the films in the series, Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World. The films shown at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center and the dates are:
Feb. 3, Prince Among Slaves
Feb. 10, Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World
Feb. 24, Koran by Heart
The screenings begin at 7:30 pm at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, and I’ll be posting more information on the Muslim Journeys series.
And here’s some beautiful photos of the exhibit taken by the incomparable Michael Christensen:
