Teahouse Arts of China
Co-presented by the UCLA Center for Chinese Studies, UCLA Confucius Institute, and the Department of Ethnomusicology, in partnership with the Confucius Institute at the University of Michigan.
China’s teahouses have long been places where family and friends have gathered to sip tea, share ideas, and watch performances of local art forms. The Hammer recreates this tradition with an evening of tea, snacks, music, and storytelling, provided by master artists of the Beijing drum song (京韵大鼓) tradition from Tianjin, China.
ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Assigned seating is available in the Billy Wilder Theater. Free tickets are required and available at the Box Office, one ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Members enjoy priority seating and seat selection, subject to availability. Membership does not guarantee seating. Arrival at least one half hour prior to program time is recommended.
Parking is available under the museum for a flat rate of $3 after 6PM.
Public programs are made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. Generous support is also provided by Hammer members; Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy; the Simms/Mann Family Foundation; Bronya and Andrew Galef; Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley; and an anonymous donor.
