Waterscapes: Islamic Architecture and Art from Doris Duke's Shangri La

Open from 12:30 p.m .to 5 p.m. 

Two of Duke's greatest passions--her love of the water; and, her love of Islamic art and architecture--came together spectacularly at Shangri La, her exotic ocean front estate in Honolulu and the only home she built for herself from ground up beginning in the late 1930s. 

Waterscapes explores the theme of water through objects on loan from Shangri La; photographs of the property and other historic sites that inspired its many fountains, pools, and cascades; and home movies from Duke's travels in North Africa, the Middle East, and India to buy art and furnishings for the house.
