During the Islamic revolution's compaigns, some young artists who arised among the victorious people in revolution, gathered together. The artists choosed the language of art to express their feelings and attitudes. They started the Islamic revolution's first activities in art, strongly with a honest will and heartily cooperation. Their activities result in founding the musume of Art and Islamic culture that later was named hozeh honary. The range of their activities were expanded and increased the inner value of hozeh which called " Visual Art Center ".

Imam ali Museum of Religious Art
Art is the manifestation of the Divine Spirit in man, and thus any artwork presents a sacred and elevated aspect. Religious art is always directed toward a sacred element and endeavors to open up before man a window toward the light shining from the shores of the unknown.

Religious art scholars consider the presence of a sacred or spiritual element as the criterion of a religious art or event, and with the sacred element they mean an elevated spiritual essence that is characterized by truth, purity and lack of shortcoming, encompassing all being.

Religious scholars agree that the manner of manifestation of a sacred element in the world of being is not uniform. It could take different forms and aspects that may at times seem to be contradictory.

Religious art created by a believing artist is inspired by a religious experience and the artist's beliefs are the source of his inspiration.

Historical evidences prove that a major portion of man's artistic heritage has been the objective materialization of religious ideas and that man has devoted his gift of creation on the altar of religion.

In the visual arts domain, Iran, one of the few centers of Islamic art and civilization, has offered to the world a special kind of art in a spiritual and mystic form. The organization of Imam Ali Religious Museum in the center of the Islamic Iran has been carried out on this basis and with special attention to the Divine gift of creativity in man. On that account the museum focuses first and foremost on artworks that inspire a profound understanding of the sacred element. The museum is also concerned with the contemporary art created by monotheist artists in the world.

Imam Ali Religious Arts Museum was established in 2000, the year which according to the Iranian Islamic calendar included twice the Feast of Ghadir and was on that account named the year of Imam Ali (A.S.).

The charter of the museum was ratified by the director of Tehran Municipality?s Cultural-Art Organization on May 15, 2006.

Museum?s Objectives and Programs

Imam Ali Religious Arts Museum?s objectives and programs include:

1.Collecting, compiling and introducing visual arts with religious aspects and works by monotheist artists;
