“Mirrored Mosaics: Artists' Reflections on Being Muslim in Minnesota”
Art Exhibition at Art Works in Eagan, MN: February-March 2019
Art Works, 3795 Pilot Knob Rd, Eagan, MN 55122
We hope that all artists and community members will help us celebrate the work of our creative Muslim brothers and sisters! All are welcome to attend the opening reception on February 10, 5:30-7:00 p.m.!
About the Exhibit:
The exhibit “Mirrored Mosaics” is intended to lift up and feature the work of creative Muslim people with a connection to Minnesota. The work need not be focused on religious themes, but it may. The work need not be a commentary in any way of your experience as it directly relates to being Muslim, but it may. The work need not be political, but it may. Faith is a defining force for many people, but it is certainly not the only defining force. Submit art that speaks your truth, and it will make an amazing exhibit that highlights the unique perspectives of being Muslim while revealing universal commonalities beyond cultural, faith and geographic influences. Challenge yourself, and let Art Works celebrate YOU!
We are seeking to celebrate artists with a direct personal connection to the Muslim community. Artistic commentary about the Muslim community from those outside the community is not appropriate in this exhibit.
