The Dallas Museum of Art in Texas is launching a three-day Islamic Art Festival to open November 16.  It will celebrate the DMA’s presentation of a collection of Islamic Art, which includes 13 centuries of Islamic cultural production - from rock crystal to metalwork, ceramics, textiles, carpets and works on paper,  Dallasnews.com reported.

From talks to music performances to artist demonstrations, the event seeks to show more about Islamic art and the influence it has had across cultures. The festival begins with a musical performance incorporating styles from Africa, the Middle East, Greece, India and Europe.

On the night of Nov. 17 the program will feature folklore performances inspired by traditions in India, Iran, Central Asia, the Middle East and Turkey.
