Six Pakistani artists to attend opening of North America’s first Islamic art museum – The Express Tribune

TORONTO: Six Pakistani artists who specialize in miniature art, music and performing arts will be present at the opening of the first Islamic art museum and cultural center in North America, which will open in Toronto next week.

Bankrolled by Prince Karim Aga Khan, the facility will feature more than 1,000 artifacts – including rare scriptures of the Holy Quran from the 7th and 8th centuries.

There are fine collections of Islamic art in museums throughout Canada and the United States, but this will be the first devoted entirely to such works when it welcomes visitors as of September 18.
