Last chance to view Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art

The exhibition Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art closes. 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 1935. Shangri La, her private residence outside Honolulu, melds modern architecture, tropical landscape, and art that Duke collected and commissioned from throughout the Muslim world.
