Currently on display at the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) is Contemporary Arabic Calligraphy by Nihad Dukhan. The exhibition, on view through Sunday, January 16, 2011, in the Harlan J. Berk Ltd. Works on Paper Gallery at LUMA, features 29 paintings by calligraphy artist Nihad Dukhan, PhD.

Arabic calligraphy is considered to be the highest form of Islamic art. Muslims view Arabic in its Quranic form as the language through which God communicated his message to the Prophet Muhammad, and thus, as the holiest language. With this inherent reverence to the language, Arabic calligraphy has historically developed as a central art form with a highly decorative purpose.
