The Splendor of Islamic Art, works by Hajra Meeks
The informative descriptions and facsimilies accompanying The Splendor of Islamic Art provide the historical context for this uniquely modern exhibit. Original works include mixed-media collage, figurative and abstract watercolors, and calligraphy.
According to the artist, "every culture has invaluable depth, beauty, and history to share with other peoples. My work for this exhibit consists of modern expressions of the classic forms and techniques that made Islamic art magnificent during its Golden Age as well as some explanations of famous, historic examples and techniques. Through it, I hope viewers will gain an appreciation of what Muslim cultures have to offer." - Hajra Meeks
