Photos: Matcha at Asian Art Musuem Celebrates Sensuality
On February 16, obsession, sex, and lust filled the air at the Asian Art Musuem, when guests enjoyed a unique nightlife experience and embellished their senses with an array of titillating exhibits throughout the museum.
Tea Alchemy hosted an intimate tea lounge, where the aroma of signature teas were created by aromatic artist Yosh Han, whose fragrances were inspired by the museum's popular exhibit, Maharaja: The Splendor of India's Royal Courts. Critically acclaimed comic book artist MariNaomi read from her graphic memoir, Kiss and Tell: A Romantic Resume Ages 0-22.
Guest were able to make their own "smell saver," enjoy henna art painted on their skin, relax with an Ayurvedic head massage, and grooved to beats by DJ Mauricio Aviles.
MATCHA isn't just a mixer—it's what makes your visit to the Asian Art Museum downright exhilarating. Experience mesmerizing performances, create your own art, embark on gallery tours, see the latest special exhibition, sit in on a talk, mingle with friends over cocktails, enjoy what the DJ is spinning, and much, much more.
