Description

Opening of City Lore’s New Exhibit and Holiday Party: Poetic Voices of the Muslim World

Developed by City Lore, in collaboration with the national poetry library and literary center Poets House, Poetic Voices of the Muslim World is an exhibit that has travelled to 11 cities and finally opens here in our New York City home. The potential of poetry to create indelible images, extend the reach of language, and express complex ideas and feelings through metaphor makes it a powerful force for illuminating cultural experiences. In Muslim cultures poetry plays a central role in all aspects of life—intellectual, spiritual, social, and political. The exhibit includes artwork inspired by Muslim poetry and art.

Thursday, December 15

6:00pm-9:00pm

Free

(Subsequent gallery hours are Thursday and Friday, 2:00 – 6:00; Sat., Sun. noon – 6:00)
