An American Story: Jewish & Muslin Perspective exhibits the original JAMMART artwork plus works by sixteen individual artists who are members of JAMMART – all of whom are immigrants, children of immigrants, or grandchildren of immigrants.  JAMMART hopes that these works can be a reminder of the ideals that the United States was founded upon.  JAMMART’s members want their art to show the power of friendship, community, faith, hope, and love.
