A Community between Two Worlds is the story of Arab Americans in Greater Detroit. For more than a century, Arabs have been coming to Michigan. This exhibition celebrates the uniqueness and historical complexity of this community, which is the largest Arabic-speaking population outside the Middle East. It examines how life in Arab Detroit has changed since immigration to Michigan, shows the creation of an Arab American culture, explores the role traditional artists play in preserving Arab identity, and traces the links that tie Detroit to the Arab world.

The online exhibit presents The Family: Preserver of Values, Leisure: A Time for Family and Friends, and Celebrating Arab Identity of Arab Americans in Greater Detroit.
