Unlike the terms Christian or Buddhist art, Islamic art refers not only to religious objects but also to forms of art made in societies in which Islam was a dominant religion. Join Laura Weinstein, Ananda Coomaraswamy Curator of South Asian and Islamic Art, to explore the galleries and see how the religion of Islam informs a wide range of sacred and secular art-making practices.
