Detroit Institute of Arts opening Islamic gallery
So many museums and galleries full of huge collections of Islamic Art, so this is great news:
The Detroit Institute of Arts plans to open a new gallery of Islamic art in February.
The museum announced Monday that the gallery opening Feb. 28 will include works of art from the Mediterranean region, the Middle East, Central Asia and India, and spans the 7th to the early 20th centuries.
The gallery was to be part of the museum’s $158-million, six-year renovation and reinstallation project that was completed in 2007. The museum says the project was delayed until funding could be secured.
