Artist's Description

The Islamic Center is a mosque and Islamic cultural center in Washington, D.C., and is one of the largest Muslim places of worship in the Western Hemisphere. An average of 6,000 people attend prayers there each Friday.

The Islamic Center opened in 1957 and its construction was ignited by the death of a prominent Islamic ambassador to the United States because there was no mosque in the nation’s capital to hold his funeral. The mosque has been visited by many high profile dignitaries, including several presidents. The highest profile visit was by George W. Bush on September 17, 2001 only days after the September 11th attacks. On national television Bush quoted from the Koran and worked to assure Americans that the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful.
