Islam: Truth and Beauty


On September 6, 2012, the BYU Museum of Art's auditorium and overflow seating were filled to capacity with eager students, faculty, and community members who gathered to hear from the renowned Dr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr. His presentation, Islam: Truth and Beauty, was given in connection to the museum's exhibition Beauty and Belief: Crossing Bridges with the Arts of Islamic Culture to help audience members better understand how the "truth of anything—is always related to beauty." This significant lecture was co-sponsored by BYU's Wheatley Institution as part of its Distinguished Lecture in International Affairs series.
