The Denver Muslim Women's Art Collection is on display in the lobby of the Ricketson Theatre throughout the run of the DCPA Theatre Company's Disgraced, playing through May 7. Here is how the exhibit is described:

 

American Muslims, with around 3.3 million citizens in the United States, have the most diverse community in the world in terms of ethnicity, sect and variations in practice. To reduce the breadth of their experiences, insight and expression to a single identity is impossible.

The play Disgraced represents one voice and one perspective. Amir struggles to balance and understand the two worlds that shape the identity of all American Muslims. But his crisis should not stand for everyone.
 
This exhibit is meant to provide a visual representation of actual American Muslims and to illustrate the fact that some individuals have found strength and beauty in the dichotomy of their backgrounds.
 
March For Humanity is honored to present to you the Denver Muslim Women's Art Collection: To take you on an inside tour of the creative Muslim community, to provide education and to build understanding between people of all kinds.
