Developed by Poets House and City Lore, Poetic Voices of the Muslim World is an exhibit that has traveled to 11 cities—and finally opens here in Manhattan. The potential of poetry to extend the reach of language and express complex ideas and feelings through metaphor makes it a powerful force. In Muslim cultures poetry plays a central role in all aspects of life—intellectual, spiritual, social, and political. The exhibit—replete with artwork inspired by Muslim poetry and folk traditions—challenges some divisive attitudes current today.
