Eid al-Adha Celebration & Artist Talk 

When: Thu., Oct. 17, 5 p.m. 2013
As part of its exhibition Doris Duke's Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art, the Nasher celebrates Eid al-Adha, an important Islamic holiday acknowledging Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son according to God's command. God substituted a lamb for Ishmael, so Muslims traditionally kill a sheep, goat or cow, splitting the meat equally among the family, neighbors and friends, and the needy in one's community. The Nasher, instead, will host a concert of Persian music by the Azadi Ensemble before Majid Roohafza gives a calligraphy demonstration and artist Mohamed Zakariya presents a talk. You can also decorate tiles and add them to a community mosaic at the museum. Music at 5 p.m., artist talk at 7 p.m. —Chris Vitiello
