Target Audience

While of obvious interest to academics, scholars, museums, and general art enthusiasts, “Art, Beauty, Music and God” will hold an additional fascination for the general American public, who lack information about Iran outside of politics and the daily news. An exploration of the iconic tradition of Nasta’liq will humanize the Persian culture for American viewers, perhaps for the first time.
