The DIA unveils new, permanent Islamic art gallery By Garrett Godwin

The Detroit Institute of Arts has had a long history of exhibiting Islamic art, and now that tradition continued with a media preview that took place early Wednesday morning. Open for the public on Sunday, the collection goes back to the 7th century and ends in the 1920's with William Valentin. Looking at an astounding case, Heather Ecker looks at it from her perspective as curator of Islamic art. That approach, said the Arts of Asia and Islamic World department head, is to look at the art closely -- what kinds of narrative and stories being told. [2.25.10]
