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

The event has been ended. Thank you for your attending.

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.
