"Arabesque: Contemporary Conversations"

  • Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Islamic Artists of Orlando is exhibiting an Islamic-inspired art collection curated in concert with the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens from May 8, 2018 through August 19, 2018.

From the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens Call for Artists: "Traditional Islamic works call to mind ancient art and architecture decorated with interlacing natural elements and geometric lines known as arabesque.  These stylized designs are often tiled or seamlessly repeated. This exhibit will explore what modern Islamic art looks like, and submitted works should explore what “arabesque” means to artists today."
