Covered: Celebrating Muslim Women
A Series by Yusuf Abdul Jaleel
September 15—November 15, 2018
628 S 16th Street, Philadelphia, PA

On Saturday, September 15th, join Art Sanctuary as we celebrate our new exhibit, Covered: Celebrating Muslim Women. This series, created by artist Yusef Abdul Jaleel, will run from September 15th to November 15th in our gallery. 

"Covered: Celebrating Muslim Women is an illustration series depicting various Muslim women of color. It was created to combat the negative stereotypes associated with modesty and covering. Muslim women are the most recognizable symbol of Islam today, and have been ridiculed and deemed “oppressed” for following guidelines mandated by their religion. It is my hope to counter these negative stereotypes by showing the variety and beauty of those who cover." —Yusef Abdul Jaleel

Join us in the gallery on 9-15 at 6pm for a first glance of the series, conversation with the artist, and light fare alongside a community of black art enthusiasts. Admission is free, and donations are welcome. 

Art Sanctuary uses the power of black art to transform individuals, create and build community and foster cultural understanding.
