Chinese Tea Gathering In Honor of the Feature Exhibition Qi Baishi,
March 16 and 17, 2019

Qi Baishi was born in China's Hunan Province, a region famous in part for its tea. In celebration of the opening of the feature exhibition, Qi Baishi: Master of Modern Chinese Painting, and as we impatiently wait for the arrival of spring, we invite you to join us for a Chinese Tea Gathering in the museum’s teahouse and in the garden. There will be a host offering tea in the museum’s tearoom, refreshed for spring, while in the garden another host will offer tea from a special teacart. Come and savor both sweets and tea as you enjoy the beauty of spring.
