Islamic art adorns the Memphis Public Library in Cordova, Tennessee

"Muslims in Memphis" hosted two art shows in two different libraries the past two weeks.

The Germantown Community Library welcomed several Muslim artists to showcase their art to the

community of Memphis on March 15.

Similarly, this Wednesday Cordova Library did the same.

Artists including Melanie Halimah, Aysha Anastasia, Natajlia Kokoreva, Rabia Irshad, Sumaira Sardar, Iman Naseer, Hajra Motiwala, and Sumeia Altareb displayed their pieces.

Attendees were given the opportunity to enjoy snacks, children were able to engage in their own art with coloring activities and a presentation about Islamic art educated attendees on history throughout the centuries.

These events had impressive turnouts with new faces from all over the Memphis community gathering together to appreciate the artistic talents of local Muslims.
