LADYDRINKS PRIVATE TOUR OF THE ISLAMIC ART COLLECTION AT THE MET

SEPT 25th  6-8 PM

METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART,  

1000 5th Ave, New York, NY 10028

Buy tix here

15 Elite women are hand picked from the LadyDrinks membership to join in this walk, led by a docent. We will engage in a private tour and talk about the Islamic Art in the permanent collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Drinks on the rooftop of the Met afterwards, weather permitting. If raining, we head to the Mezzanine level for cocktails.

The Museum's collection of Islamic art ranges in date from the seventh to the nineteenth century. Its nearly twelve thousand objects reflect the great diversity and range of the cultural traditions of Islam, with works from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia and India. Comprising sacred and secular objects, the collection reveals the mutual influence of artistic practices such as calligraphy, and the exchange of motifs such as vegetal ornament (the arabesque) and geometric patterning in both realms.

Although the Museum acquired some seals and jewelry from Islamic countries as early as 1874, and a number of Turkish textiles in 1879, it received its first major group of Islamic objects in 1891, as a bequest of Edward C. Moore. Since then, the collection has grown through gifts, bequests, and purchases, as well as through Museum-sponsored excavations at Nishapur, Iran, in 1935–39 and in 1947.

Cinema Village, 22 East 12th Street, New York, 10003
Buy tickets here ****ONLY 20 SPOTS VIP SEATING FOR LADYDRINKS


Last year, I was named the Executive Director of a South Asian film festival presented by HBO. Our sold-out 500 person show was Pakistan's entry to the Oscars "Dukhtar" directed by Afia Nathaniel. The plotline centers on plight of the girl child in the world, and one mother's fight to save her daugther from a child marriage. DUKHTAR releases on 9th October for a limited one week engagement in New York City at the Cinema Village.

To coincide with International Day of the Girl Child, LadyDrinks is proud to host a special screening of the film, followed by a Q&A with me and the director Afia Nathaniel. LadyDrinks mothers and daughters are welcome for the 5:05 pm on Saturday October 10th, followed by a Q&A between Joya Dass and Afia Nathaniel. Only 20 seats in the Ladydrinks section.
