BERLIN, GERMANY (Worthy News)– In a historic first, the Vatican partnered with the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization to present "so that you may know each other." The "exhibition is one-of-a-kind — not only because it presents excellent artwork, but also because it furthers dialogue between Christians and Muslims," Deutsche Welle reported.
Ulrike al-Khamis has outdone herself. In a project that began six years ago, the art historian from Germany was tasked with bringing the extensive collections of the Emir of Sharjah into shape when the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization was renovated and re-opened. The exhibition she is now presenting in a sparkling domed building almost the size of a soccer field has exceeded expectations.
"It is the first collaboration of the Vatican with an Arab country," said al-Khamis. Indeed, the exhibition is one-of-a-kind – not only because it presents excellent artworks but also because it furthers dialogue between Christians and Muslims. — Source
