The AAI Foundation is proud to showcase the rich heritage and tremendous diversity found in Arab and Arab American arts and culture. From co-sponsoring film festivals to hosting concerts, we work with communities and artists to improve understanding and awareness of the varied music, literature, and arts found from Libya to Lebanon, from Mauritania to Morocco. 

Arab, Muslim, and Arab American contemporary artists draw on the rich traditions of the Middle East to create new works in every field. We have been fortunate to work with a wide variety of artists from Arab American comedians and poets to Arab filmmakers and singers.

Below you will find articles about artists and performers, exhibits, and resources for both art lovers and artists. We encourage you to contact us at to share additional resources.
