The first Islamic Arts Festival was held in Houston in November 2014. We showcased the art of 23 Houston based artists and the event was attended by over 4000 people. The Arts Festival brought people from diverse cultures, faiths and backgrounds together for a day of learning, fun and festivity. The event was organized by the Islamic Arts Society of Houston under the umbrella of Islamic Society of Greater Houston.
During the festival, grownups and children alike felt pride in experiencing and presenting arts and discovered the beauty of Islamic arts in a festive and joyous environment.
Here is a sampling of the festivities in the form of a picture collage as well as video shoots from the Channel 1 TV coverage.
