The 4th annual Islamic Arts Festival was held on the 11th and 12th of November, 2017. Co-sponsored by The Islamic Arts Society & Rice University's Boniuk Institute for Religious Tolerance, the Islamic Arts Festival is the largest and oldest of its kind in North America. With over 10,000 ft.² of art space, over 5000 art pieces and over 50 artists, there was something for everyone to enjoy and share. More than 5000 visitors attended the festival this year. The festival brought together children and adults of all faiths, religions and cultures for two days of fun, festivity and learning. 

Here is a sampling of the festivities in the form of a picture collage.

Islamic Arts Society aims to share the rich heritage of arts in Islam.  The society organizes events to celebrate our culture and promote the positive image of our community among Muslims and non-Muslims. Art is a common language and binds diverse communities. By promoting Islamic arts we hope to promote mutual understanding and to bring the broader American community together.
