MISSION STATEMENT

Islamic Arts Society aims to share the rich heritage of Islamic Arts. 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.

ISLAMIC ARTS FESTIVAL

The Islamic Arts Society thanks its partners and friends for making the 6th annual Islamic Arts Festival a resounding success. The event was held on the 9th & 10th of November 2019 at Masjid Al Salaam, 16700 Old Louetta road, Spring. TX 77379.
The event showcased the art of 48 artists who were at hand to entertain the visitors. This year famous artists Nihad Dukhan from Michigan and Muhammad Zaman from NY also took part in the festival along with many renowned local artists. Visitors especially enjoyed the live interactive sessions including calligraphy, Ebru, painting and children’s art activities. Over 5500 people attended the event that brought people from diverse cultures, faiths and backgrounds together for a weekend of learning, fun and festivity.
