RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK -- Anila Quayyum Agha

By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
Michelle Marti: "This cool piece of art by Pakistani American artist Anila Quayyum Agha has been on display at my son’s school this week thanks to Arts for Learning"
While we dined with best friends Mick & Vivian on Valentine's Day this week, kids at Indianapolis Public Schools delighted in the light of Anila Quayyum Agha's sculpture "Intersections." Named by ArtNews as one of the top 100 artworks of the last decade, the artist installed the massive work in a K-8 school gymnasium. In 2014, "Intersections," earned the ArtPrize Grand Prize, and you voted Agha as the Alpha & Omega Prize honoree of that year. The installation at The Center for Inquiry School 84 makes Anila Quayyum Agha, our artist of the week.
