Doris Duke and Her Estates

January 13, 2011 – April 3, 2011
Location: Perkins Gallery
Sponsor(s): Doris Duke Archivist, RBMSCL

Most biographies of Doris Duke have focused on her glamorous lifestyle, often overlooking her efforts to make a difference in the world.  This exhibit reveals how she continued the family's quiet but innovative pattern of philanthropy, her drive to address environmental issues, her keen eye for art and design, her passion for preserving colonial-era houses, and her love of music. 

This exhibition was sponsored in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
