More than one thousand works from the preeminent collection of the Museum's Department of Islamic Art—one of the most comprehensive gatherings of this material in the world—will return to view this fall in a completely renovated, expanded, and reinstalled suite of fifteen galleries. The organization of the galleries by geographical area will emphasize the rich diversity of the Islamic world, over a span of thirteen hundred years, by underscoring the many distinct cultures within its fold.
