The BIID Exhibit was featured by Saadia Khalid for the Daily Times:
ISLAMABAD: Depicting the history of Muslims’ arrival in Detroit and their settlement there, an exhibition of photographs titled ‘Building Islam in Detroit’ started at the National Art Gallery (NAG) here on Friday.
Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) organised the exhibition in collaboration with US embassy.
Detroit, Michigan, is home to one of the largest, oldest Muslim populations in the United States (US) where the first mosque was built in 1921 and since then there had been tremendous growth in Muslim heritage in the city.
The mosques captured are ideal examples of this creative process, as they are sites at which Muslims give collective, material expression to their belief.
