Cuesta College and the Morro Bay Branch Library invite the public to a free film screening of Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World on Saturday, September 14, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Morro Bay Branch Library.

“This visually rich documentary introduces audiences to the variety of Muslim contributions in the arts, crafts, and architecture over the past 1400 years,” says Cuesta College Librarian Denise Fourie. “It is like sitting in on an art history course.” 

The screening is a part of a grant called the 2013 Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys, which was awarded to the Cuesta College Library this year. The Bookshelf is a collection of 25 books, four DVDs and an online database selected to help public audiences become more familiar with the people, places, history, faith, and cultures of Muslims around the word and within the United States.

Carmen Zinn, Cuesta College world religions instructor, will answer questions following the film. The Morro Bay Branch Library is located at 625 Harbor Street; the film will be screened in the Program Room. Free parking and refreshments will be provided. For more information please contact Denise Fourie at dfourie@cuesta.edu.
