Orchids: A Tribute to Doris Duke

As if Emerald Cities wasn’t glitzy enough, we’ve go a little extra eye candy for visitors attending opening week festivities. For one week only, the Asian Art Museum is presenting Orchids: A Tribute to Doris Duke. Doris Duke, who collected many of the works on view in Emerald Cities, was also a great lover of orchids. In her honor, we’ve invited floral designers from around the bay area to each create a display of these tropical beauties in the museum’s North and South Courts. These striking arrangements will be on view this week through Sunday October 25.  Enjoy them while they last!
