Few countries have captured the world’s attention like Syria has today. With the death toll rising and no end in sight to the civil war, a Toronto museum is opening an exhibit that inspires a new understanding of Syria’s past, present and future. “Syria: A Living History” opens Saturday, October 15 at the Aga Khan Museum and includes 50 objects that tell a story of diversity and resilience. Despite the Syrian tragedy, museum CEO Henry Kim says this exhibit is a celebration that brings together over 5 thousand years of art highlighting the country’s diverse cultures. The oldest artifact is a carved eye idol dated to around 3,200 B.C. The exhibit runs until next February. The Aga Khan museum opened in 2014 to offer visitors a better overview of the arts and culture of the Muslim World. For more information visit AgaKhanmuseum.org
