CLASS: Learn at Lunch: Nasher Museum - Doris Duke's Shangri La

Friday, October 25, 2013 at 12:00pm
Katie is the Assistant Curator of Exhibitions at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, and Nasher’s coordinating curator for Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art. Internationally known for her wealth and style, American heiress and philanthropist Doris Duke amassed one of the nation’s most important private collections of Islamic art over a period of more than 50 years beginning in the mid 1930’s. Shangri La, her private residence in Honolulu, melds together modern architecture, tropical landscape and art that Duke collected and commissioned throughout the Muslim world. Join Katie for this informative session about the collection and Cooking School Staff for an abbreviated cooking demonstration.

Menu: Mint and Feta Salad with Walnuts; Pita Bread with Lamb Kebabs and Herbed Yogurt; Date Ice Cream with Spiced Honey Syrup
