Art Brings The World Together
The Indus Arts Council (IAC) is raising funds for its programs to showcase ethnic and cultural expression through art in Houston, TX, by collaborating with a local Houston artist, Zahra Ali.
About The Artist
Zahra Ali is a Pakistani American artist who was born in Karachi, Pakistan. Art was all around her on local transportation—busses and rickshaws showcased ancestral origins with lines of poetry interwoven with ethnic iconography. After her Bachelors of Fine Arts from Texas State University, San Marcos, TX, in the U.S.A, she took on commissions for artwork on walls, floors, and ceilings. She’s a resident artist at the Bisong Art Gallery in Houston, and her murals can be found on several commercial buildings in the city.
Art Exhibition and Events
Art transcends geographical and national divides. Indus Arts Council believes that communities can come closer and dispel cultural and racial biases by learning about each other through arts. IAC will be featuring Zahra Ali on FB Live events, Instagram, and FB stories as she continues to paint the mural on a commercial building in midtown Houston. She will also host free painting classes for the underserved refugee communities.
Mural can be seen any day and time on 2727 Travis Street, Midtown, Houston, TX. The best time to look at the mural is after sunset when the interior lights illuminate the colors with lease reflections.
Donate for the Beauty that’s in Cultural Diversity
We appreciate all who believe in living amicably with our differences. The beauty of this world lies in cultural diversity, and we are continually striving to bring immersive experiences of culture from across the globe. Your donation will help us get diverse communities together to experience ethnic expressions that lend a broader lens to the human mind and develops tolerance and understanding for each other.
The money raised will fund IAC's arts and culture programs that attract diverse communities of visual and performing artists for a cultural exchange. A portion of the funds will go towards ethnic art classes for the underserved and immigrant communities in Houston.
