The Art of Islam Is Written
Decoration in Islam begins with the written word. Whether taken from the Qur’an or other sources, written words are integral to the design of Islamic objects. In this Takeout Tuesday with docent Steve Zilles, we'll look closely at two artworks in the museum’s collection to explore how beautiful writing expresses Islamic practice.
