Art Break | Mingei International Museum

Join San Diego State University Founding Director of the Chinese Cultural Center, Professor Lilly Cheng, for an overview of the historical and transcultural function of a cup of tea. The symbolism of a cup of tea as a gift, an offering of friendship, a ritual, a memory of taste and smell, an art form and a part of the Silk Road. Featuring art pieces and various teas from China, this conversation will explore how tea transcends cultures and how humans use tea as a conversation piece and a human connector.
