You’ve seen Jet Li do it in movies---now watch international champions Philip Wong and Zhang Hong Mei lead members of their martial arts school Pacific Wushu in an electrifying jaw-dropping performance of fierce fighting infused with complex movements, speed, and artistic expression.
View our summer exhibition Power & Glory: Court Arts of China’s Ming Dynasty, jump on guided gallery tours of Asian weaponry, make a rank badge or brush painting, tune in to a talk on shaolin martial arts, drop in on a tai chi demonstration (or try it yourself), sip on a cocktail with friends, and “kick it” with DJ Phatrick (of APEX Express and Native Guns) who'll be spinning a fresh mix of hip hop, funk, and soul.
MATCHA is the perfect way to get your monthly arts and culture fix. Watch performances, stroll the galleries, create art, mingle over cocktails, and enjoy music.
