In my earlier post today, I recommended that young and old alike must visit the “Sentiment Wall” at the International Arts Festival. It is an outdoor exhibit consisting of three thematic walls located about 150 metres from the International Arts Gallery. After spending about an hour the Sentiment Wall yesterday evening, I attended the International Arts Gallery. It is impressive enough to merit its own catalogue. I present here a glimpse from the remarkable exhibition showcasing outstanding Ismaili talent from around the world.
