Walters Art Museum Focuses On Islamic Art

The Walters Art Museum


On Monday afternoon, Tom went to the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore to see its new exhibition of Islamic Art. It’s called Pearls on a String, and he spoke with the associate curator of Islamic and South Asian Art, Amy Landau.

The exhibition is at the Walters until the end of next month. On Sunday, there’s a walk-in tour of the show that starts at 1:00, and then at 2:00, there’s a panel discussion on the Muslim Experience in Baltimore. It will feature Harold Morales from Morgan State University and Saafir Raab from Interculture, a consulting firm that concentrates on cultural competency. The panel will be moderated by Alison Kysia from the Institute for Christian & Jewish Studies.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
