The Islamic Arts Society, a Houston-based nonprofit organization, will host its 9th Annual Islamic Arts Festival in December at Masjid Al-Salam, a mosque in northwest Houston.
The Islamic Arts Society organizes and collaborates on events and classes throughout the year to promote understanding of Islamic culture. The annual two-day festival is the largest event hosted by the organization and typically sees about 5,000 participants. People of diverse cultures, faiths, and backgrounds are invited to learn about and enjoy Islamic arts.
This year’s festival will feature artists from across the United States, demonstrations, workshops, food, and tours of the mosque. Some of the artforms that will be on display include calligraphy, paintings, woodwork, ceramics, ebru (paper marbling), and henna.
The festival will take place on December 10 and 11 from 10:30 am until 5:00 pm at 16700 Old Louetta Road, Spring, TX 77379. Admission to the festival is free.
