For this milestone, I studied the Christian and Muslim religions and used what I learned about the Bible and the Qur’an to connect the various types of qualities both teachings have. In doing so, I developed a project in which I created a building to symbolize/represent the connection of these various ideas. The resources used to enhance my study were found in a local Chicago art gallery, the SmArt Museum, which I visited on Saturday April 21st, 2012. The art pieces used in the slideshow presentation below where founded as an interpretive study to connect Muslim and Christian teachings to their religious texts. During this Field Experience, I also interviewed my father, James Toland, to get more incite about how these art pieces can be understood/defined. I thought this would be the best way to describe the foundations of the building I designed and express the content I studied for connecting these two beliefs together through Christ and Muhammad.
