Caravanserai exhibit catalog now available

September 2, 2011

A new catalogue is now available in print which commemorates the exhibit, Caravanserai: Carpets, Canvas, Calligraphy, Crafts from the Middle East and North Africa.

Filled with beautiful images from last September's exhibit at CSU’s Hatton Gallery, the catalogue features diverse artwork from the Middle East and North Africa region. Several CSU departments and faculty members collaborated on the exhibit.

Caravanserais were places that provided rest and refreshment for travelers on trade routes throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

The Caravanserai exhibit and catalogue aim to broaden the public’s understanding and appreciation of the rich and diverse artwork from the Middle East and North Africa regions, which include Mali, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.

In addition to the items on display from the CSU community, objects collected by Northern Colorado residents who have lived or traveled through this region were also included in the exhibit.

Caravanserai was sponsored by a Lilla B. Morgan grant, a U.S. Dept. of Education grant for the Middle East/North Africa Option in International Studies, the Hatton Gallery, International Education, CSU’s Department of Art, Department of Design and Merchandising, and Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures.
