Join GRAM in Cook Auditorium for a Lunch and Learn discussion led by Grand Rapids architect Robert Daverman focusing on the influence of light and shadow in Islamic architecture. The architecture of a building is often shaped, expressed, and understood by light— explore architecture in regions where artists Anila Quayyum Agha and Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian drew inspiration for their work, and learn how they compare to contemporary architecture today. The conversation will lead us on a journey throughout multiple centuries, looking at Islamic architectural marvels around the globe.

RSVP for this event is encouraged, but not required. This event is BYOB (bring your own lunch) and free to the public and GRAM members.
