On Wednesday, September 12, 2018 the exhibition Chado: The Way of Tea explored the prominent role and significance of the tea ceremony as an art and spiritual practice in China and Japan. Objects displayed were selected from the College of East Asian Studies collection and loaned by tea enthusiasts in the Wesleyan community. Several media were represented, including ceramics, lacquer ware, bamboo, wood, iron, textiles, and calligraphy. In addition, photographs from National Geographic photographer Michael Yamashita ’71 were featured.
