Ummah Exhibition Opening Reception and Talk
September 4, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT
Emerald Project co-founders Satin Tashnizi and Nora Abu-Dan will discuss the origin and mission of their non-profit, The Emerald Project, and how Ummah*, a UMFA ACME Lab exhibition, came together. Created in collaboration with The Emerald Project, Ummah is an exciting, community-focused exhibition that explores the primary tenets of Islam and celebrates the Muslim community in Utah. Connect with the dynamic team that brought Ummah* to fruition at a panel discussion in the Auditorium and follow their conversation into the gallery.
*Ummah is the Arabic word for community, referring to a collective of Islamic peoples transcending the boundaries of nations. It can also mean a community with any common history.
Arrive early for refreshments in the UMFA café and to explore Ummah in the ACME Lab.
ACME Lab is an innovative space in the Museum’s Emma Eccles Jones Education Center dedicated to community engagement and art experimentation. This exhibition and ACME Lab is made possible, in part, by a generous gift from The JoAnne L. Shrontz Family Foundation.
This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
