The Indianapolis Museum of Art is preparing to host an exhibit of the arts in Islamic society. Beauty and Belief: Crossing Bridges with the Arts of Islamic Culture opens Friday. Museum officials say the exhibit will give visitors an opportunity to explore Islamic culture and explore artworks never seen in the United States. Built from collections around the world, it includes a 26-foot calligraphic scroll dating from the 14th or 15th century, a 13th century bowl from Iran and a Syrian glass flask believed to date from as early as the seventh century. The exhibit runs through Jan. 13.
