ACME Lab: Unmah

ACME Lab: Unmah

Presented by Utah Museum of Fine Arts at Utah Museum of Fine Arts

Ummah is a collaborative and community-focused installation dedicated to celebrating Utah’s Muslim community and educating the public about the Islamic way of life. Ummah, the Arabic word for community, refers to a collective of Islamic peoples transcending the boundaries of nations and can also mean a community with any common history—a title that successfully reflects the intentions of this exhibition.

The exhibition is in collaboration with Emerald Project, a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the understanding of Islam and bridging the gap between Muslims and non-Muslims by separating Islam, culture, and politics.

ACME Lab is an innovative space in the Museum’s Emma Eccles Jones Education Center dedicated to community engagement and art experimentation. This exhibition and ACME Lab is made possible, in part, by a generous gift from The JoAnne L. Shrontz Family Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov
