Tea House Quilt debuts at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Arts Horizons teaching artist, Michele Brody’s Tea House Quilt recently debuted in New York. On April 30th and May 1st, the quilt was  displayed at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens during the Garden’s Annual Cherry Blossom Festival.

Honorably, the Garden celebrated spring and Japanese culture in remembrance of the victims who were involved in the earthquake and tsunami. Brody was thrilled to join the celebration.

Tea House Quilt is an interactive installation and Brody invited all to contribute . Many visited Tea House Quilt at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens last Saturday and Sunday to share their reflections and added their tea stories.

The Tea Quilt is making its way to Virginia. It will be featured in a show titled, Pulp Fiction, in Portsmouth.
