Santa Fe’s newest art museum, Site Santa Fe, hosts a monthly series of short talks, “Digest This”, that are loosely related to the exhibits on display at the museum. I went to the lectures earlier this week. Art detective Bernard Ewell talked a bit about his experiences in finding and recovering stolen art. Then, tea exert Frank Murphy gave a great talk about the soulful properties of tea. The owner of Santa Fe’s world-famous Teahouse brought out some samples of tea for everyone to sample. The Pu-Erh tea is apparently one of the most sought-after in the world.
It was a cool experience to get to hear from experts in things I don’t normally spend too much time thinking about. I’m going to go again next month, when one of the talks is possibly about life on other planets.
