To be a true contemporary art afficianadio, one must also delve into the old and the new, the East and the West.

Come show your love for arts of all cultures, old and new! Or, as the press release states: “The art show will enlighten our children, friends and neighbors about the unique place of arts in Islam and also inspire and acknowledge budding local artists.”
