Islamic Arts Society aims to share the rich heritage of arts in Islam.  The society intends to organize 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 Houston community together.
