Another Way of Looking: Exhibit Opening
The Cleveland Public Library contributed manuscript material to the exhibit, Another Way of Looking. The exhibit is the first Art Gallery show to focus on Islam, and brings together a collection of contemporary art influenced by Islam – playful, personal, universal – featuring works in acrylic, textiles, video, calligraphy and mixed mediums by artists Azra Aksamija, Salma Arastu, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Nama Khalil, Asma Shikoh, Susanne Slavick (Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon), and Huda Totonji. The exhibit is curated by Nama Khalil.

In addition, in Gallery C, the Art Gallery will present Islamic Manuscripts from The Cleveland Public Library Collection, curated by Marian Bleeke, and Touching the History: Photographs from the Dome of Hagia Sophia, featuring photographs by A. Cemal Ekin, Ph.D.

Dates: Friday, May 21 and running through Sunday, June 26. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
