Film, Tea, and More at Seattle’s Asian Art Museum
Are you into English Breakfast or matcha? Green, black, white, or herbal? If you’re a tea fan, add the Seattle Asian Art Museum to your itinerary this fall. A Saturday lecture series that extends through December 3rd, “Tea Times: Culture, Commerce, and Conflict,” brings local, national, and international experts to the museum to discuss the soothing beverage. Discover the philosophy, literature, art, and economics embedded in the history of tea.
Don’t forget to check out the museum’s other programs. An Asian film series brings weekly movies to the auditorium. Until February 26th, see Terratopia: The Chinese Landscape in Painting and Film, an exhibition of classical Chinese landscapes. Also on view, a modern film by Yang Fudong (The Seven Individuals in a Bamboo Forest) reveals the timeless quality of our environmental reflections.
