LDS Church News and Events: Islamic Art Museum Crosses Bridges of Understanding
“In a corner of the Brigham Young University Museum of Art in Provo, Utah, USA, a page from a ninth-century, north African Qur’an manuscript gleams with gold-leaf lettering that reads, in part, ‘Whatever good you put forward for yourselves—you will find it with Allah. Indeed, Allah of what you do, is Seeing’ (2:110).”

“Beauty & Belief” Exhibition of Functional Islamic Art Premiers at BYU Museum of Art

“One interesting element of “Beauty and Belief” is that the pieces in the exhibition are all items whose first function is not necessarily to express an artistic ideal, or provide beauty for its own sake. They are objects made to be used in daily living that are artistic because of their craftsmanship.”
