Even though the day was rainy, we had a great time on Sunday, March 13, when a group of us visited the San Francisco Main Public Library to view a calligraphy demonstration by Arash Shirinbab and also to view a beautiful exhibition, Arabic: Language of the Quran, on the 6th floor of the library in the Skylight Gallery. About 30 visitors enjoyed hearing three of the artists in the exhibition talk about their artwork, Arabic calligraphy, artistic inspirations, interfaith collaborations, and more. The three artists were Susan Felix, Rubina Kazi and Arash Shirinbab. This group art visit was sponsored by the Faith Trio and organized by Lea Delson of Kehilla and Betsy King of Montclair Presbyterian Church.
The next group art visit sponsored by the Faith Trio will be on Tuesday, May 3rd, beginning at 11 am. We will be visiting the Contemporary Jewish Museum, located at 736 Mission Street, San Francisco (across the street from Yerba Buena Gardens) to view the photography exhibition, Roman Vishniac Rediscovered. Admission to the museum will be free and there will be a free docent tour at 11:30 am, as well.
