Tracks in the Snow- The Muslim Experience in Minnesota

An estimated 200,000 Muslims from around the world live in Minnesota. The photo exhibit, Tracks in the Snow, curated by the Islamic Resource Group, showcases the stories of many Minnesota Muslims.

The photo exhibit will be hosted from Saturday, July 1 – Wednesday, August 30 at Mitchell Hamline School of Law Art Gallery, 875 Summit Avenue, St. Paul. The exhibit is free and open to the public Mondays-Thursdays 7 am-midnight, Fridays 7 am-10 pm, Saturdays 8 am-10 pm, and Sundays 8 am-midnight.  The exhibit is sponsored by World Without Genocide and co-sponsored by Douglas Heidenreich, Walid and Dania Issa, and the Minnesota State Bar Association Human Rights Committee.

In connection with the exhibit, World Without Genocide is producing a short film, “Amidah:  Muslims, Christians, and Jews Take a Stand Against Hate.”  Visitors to the exhibit are invited to be filmed giving personal statements of standing up against acts of intolerance and supporting inclusion and acceptance. This project is funded in part by a grant from Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council.
