On Friday, September 27th, the University Libraries and the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) are hosting a discussion around Islamic Art at 7:30 p.m. in the Little Theater at the TMA. We will be showing Islamic Art Spots, a series of short films about art from Muslim societies, as highlighted in the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, a collection of books and films that presents diverse perspectives on the people, places, histories, beliefs, and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world. After the film spots, join a discussion with Carolyn Putney, curator of Asian art, about works from TMA’s own collection that fit into the stories of Muslim Journeys.
This talk is free and open to the public (paid parking is available at the museum). It is not necessary, but you can RSVP on Facebook. For more information about this and other upcoming events related to the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, please see our LibGuide.
