"From Fez to Montecito: Moroccan Architectural Aesthetics in Situ and in Spirit"
Dr. Overton provides an overview of Moroccan traditional crafts in medieval cities like Fez and Marrakesh. Her discussion of the global appeal of Moroccan aesthetics includes a Paris mosque, Honolulu home of Doris Duke in the 1930s, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Montecito Country Club.
Art à la carte, sponsored by the SBMA Women’s Board, is a series of luncheons featuring acclaimed speakers that will inspire new ways of thinking about art, culture, and travel.
Each luncheon and lecture will be held at the historic Santa Barbara Club located at 1105 Chapala Street in downtown Santa Barbara. Proceeds from Art à la carte benefit the Museum’s exhibitions, education, acquisitions, and special projects.
