Ayesha. (2015, May 8). Art Conquers Islamophobia. The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Muslims are often bombarded with Islamophobia and negative comments about Islam. However, a young Muslim woman was surprised to see the beautiful Islamic art displayed at the MET Islamic art gallery.

By using and engaging with art, the West can move towards a peaceful relationship with the Middle East and Muslims.
