Muslim artists from Oklahoma City, Edmond and Norman, Oklahoma, will be holding a one-night event showcasing their works. This third annual "Art in the Heartland" exhibition at Will Rogers Theater Wednesday night.

Twelve artists, most of them women, and most of them in their early twenties, will display artist endeavors covering a wide range of the arts: painting, sketching, fashion photography, poetry and Arabic calligraphy, which has long been a traditional form of Islamic art.  The list of the 12 artists and their bios are available here.

Event organizers say it is rare opportunity for Oklahoma Muslim artists to express their identities as both Oklahomans and Muslims and create a broader dialogue within the arts community.  It may also be a chance to address stereotypes and build community bonds throught the arts.
