Bring your lunch and join GRAM for a free Lunch and Learn presented with Kaufman Interfaith Institute. Hear from Dr. Anne Heath, Associate Professor of Art History and Director of the Mellon Scholars Program at Hope College, who teaches Islamic Art and will help us learn the basic elements of Islamic Art, how those elements are evident in the current exhibits at GRAM, and what Islamic Art and these exhibits teach us about interfaith cooperation and community. She will be followed by a conversational panel of interfaith voices representing the Judaism, Buddhism, and, of course, Islam reflecting on this style out of their own traditions. Come ready to create as we will conclude out time by making some Islamic Art of our own!
RSVP for this event is encouraged, but not required. This event is BYOB (bring your own lunch) and free to the public and GRAM members.
