Support for the Arts

The Alavi Foundation initiated the Support for the Arts Program in 1984. In the past, we have provided funds for many projects carried out by universities, museums and art exhibitions. These projects have made significant contributions in the introduction of Islamic and Persian arts, handicrafts and tribal arts of Iran and the Muslim world. The Foundation has supported projects such as the Sacred Heart University Bakhtiari Tribal Art Exhibition in Scotland, the American Museum of Natural History’s Traveling the Silk Road Exhibition in New York City, and the Textile Museum’s Persian Carpet Exhibition in Washington D.C.
