Doris Duke surrounded herself with beautiful Islamic art that engaged all the senses. Her home in Hawaii, Shangri La, both serves to instruct and delight, and to provide a platform for creating appreciation for the art of a part of the world sadly gaining attention for vastly different reasons. The course will use Doris Duke's collection to introduce the basic principles of Islamic art, in the hope that appreciation and greater understanding will follow. Delight? You'll just have to visit Hawaii, walk in the gardens of Shangri La, listen to the ocean and feel the warm breezes, and imagine yourself . . . . Lecture (plus questions).
