From Central Asia and India to Spain and Morocco, the arts of the Islamic world embody powerful visions of man's relationship to god, the sophisticated tastes of Muslim rulers and a brilliant feeling for abstract color and design.  Join Dr. Anne Bromberg, The Cecil and Ida Green Curator of Ancient and Asian Art, for a closer look at this rich work, including the Islamic domed buildings, masterpieces of richly colorful architecture, and Islamic paintings that give an exquisite glimpse of courtly life and the natural world.

Presented in partnership with the Boshell Family Lecture Series on Archaeology. 

Late Night Lectures are included in FREE general admission.
