Senses Cultural is proud to promote the International Museum of Women’s Muslima Exhibition

Senses Cultural is proud to be a supporter of the International Museum of Women (IMOW). The mission of the International Museum of Women is to inspire creativity, awareness and action on vital global issues for women. Because of the commonalities of purpose between Senses Cultural and IMOW, we are excited to promote this innovative online museum that showcases art, stories and ideas to celebrate, inspire and advance the lives of women around the world. We are especially honored to bring to you IMOW’s new exhibition, Muslima: Muslim Women’s Art & Voices.

Muslim Women’s Art & Voices is a global online exhibition that presents a groundbreaking collection of thought pieces and artwork from contemporary Muslim women who are defining their own identities and, in the process shattering pervasive stereotypes. Muslima includes exclusive interviews with global leaders of the movement for a more equitable world and original content from established and emerging artists and thinkers. Curator of this remarkable exhibit is Samina Ali, visionary, writer, activist, published author.   Watch Samina Ali’s remarks at the recent Muslima public program in San Francisco, “From Sharjah to San Francisco: Muslim Women Discuss Peace, Identity, and Art.”  http://muslima.imow.org/

heART of Iran Exhibit

Thanks to everyone who helped with the very successful exhibit “HeART of Iran,” which was held in the Capitol from June 18-23, 2012. “It demonstrated what we can do when we work together,” said Tata Monfared, executive director of Senses Cultural.  “Thanks again to state Sen. Sam Blakeslee and his office.”

The goal of the exhibition of nearly 50 Iranian and Iranian-American artists was to provide a deeper understanding of the unique beauty of Persian culture and to challenge stereotypes of Iranians as Islamic extremists.

 

“We look forward to hosting more events at the Capitol celebrating Persian culture,” added Monfared. “After all, there are large numbers of Iranians in California who want to share their cultural heritage with others.”
