POETIC VOICES OF THE MUSLIM WORLD TRAVELING EXHIBIT
The lushly-illustrated 18-panel exhibit highlights poetic traditions from four major language areas—Arabic, Persian, Turkish and Urdu—and introduces poetry from Asia, Africa and diaspora communities in the U.S. Designed by RAA Associates, the exhibit features photography, calligraphic masterworks, and poetry from Adonis to Rumi. Jacksonville was one of six cities chosen to host this exhibit.
Poetic Voices of the Muslim World is presented by Poets House and City Lore, in partnership with the American Library Association and the Jacksonville Public Library along with the public libraries in Los Angeles, Detroit, Milwaukee, Washington, D.C. and Queens, N.Y. It is funded by the Bridging Cultures Program of the National Endowment for the Humanities with additional support from the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
