Islamic Art is going to be presented in May, 2014, in the Dallas Museum of Art. This is part of a great loan that this American Museum is receiving and that is renewable no less than in 15 years. What is even more amazing is that this is going to be, according to the Museum’s authorities, the largest Islamic Art Collection ever had in the entire United States.
Maxwell Anderson (who is Dallas Museum Director) said that it is an unparallel collection that gives them the opportunity to create new things like a gallery space to show the work made in a Keir Collection and also the museum will add a digital archive of the collection.
What is a Keir Collection?
Edmund de Unger was the one who assembled the pieces that included textile things, carpets, rock crystal, ceramics, works on paper and metal works.
Dallas Museum of Art will have the chance to show and explained through the artistic things it will have the story of a culture that has begun many centuries ago and that probably it is still unknown for many people. So, probably in May people in the United States will see a different part of the Islamic art and history.

This museum was built back in 1881 and had historic things like coins, jewelry, manuscripts and more.
