MENO, the newly opened specialty tea house in the West Village, will be hosting the Art To Wear event featuring artist Teng Teng on Sunday, October 11th from 2pm-6pm!
Guests will be able to create a Microcosm, an art endeavor crafted by Teng Teng that is inspired by ancient hand scrolls, an art form of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). This artwork expresses the course of time, within a miniature frame. The miniature frames (1.1 x 1 inch) are originally designed by the artist to contain paintings within. These pieces can be worn as brooches, necklaces or rings.
While guests create their own Microcosm, they will enjoy brunch with dishes such as Plato’s Choice with smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, rosemary, olives and arugula on a croissant or Pork Guokui, sliced flatbread with pork, and a specialty tea from the MENO team like Twilight, a coffee meets juice creation with lemon juice and coffee.
This event will be held bi-monthly at MENO and the pricing begins at $75, which includes one brunch dish, a tea or coffee from MENO’s menu and the microcosm. The artists own microcosms will also be on display at MENO and available for purchase.
