Syrian-born visual artist Nabil Mousa showed a new work to the public today from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Mattress Factory Lofts. The piece is a three-paneled mobile-mural collaged with pages of the Torah, Koran, and Bible. With the piece, he hopes to signify connections between religions and show that we have more in common than differences.

A unique aspect of the project included welcoming friends and loved ones affected by the 9/11 attacks and the Iraq war. Nabil hopes to travel the panels around the country and eventually find a home for them in New York.

Nabil says the mural correlates with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s beliefs to eradicate social injustice and invoke peace.
