“The tea project was a most unusual way to bring people together in a convivial setting as they recollected important memories, shared stories and made art.   The project supported the Guild’s mission of building community in a unique and effective manner.”

In Tea Cart Stories passersby are invited into a cart to share a cup of tea and stories about tea with the artist, Michele Brody.  It offers pedestrians a delightful opportunity to transform their day with a chance meeting – exploring the boundaries of privacy in the public realm.

“Every stage of Brody’s performances/sculptures (of Reflections in Tea) brings with them a feeling of serenity, meant, I’m sure, to help combat the stresses of our hectic modern world.”

Executive Director, Bronx River Art Center

“I’m very thankful for my experience at Michele’s CommuniTea event. Through this, I was able to bring together tea with my neighborhood of The Bronx, both of which I love dearly. This experience was more than just a cup of tea with Michele. This was the sharing of my mind and spirit with members of my community.”

Former Grants Administrator, Bronx Council on the Arts
“Bronx CommuniTea engages older community members in a multi-disciplinary, socially engaging event series that focuses on building relationships and increasing nutritional awareness through the contemplative art of sharing Tea. We are thrilled to welcome Brody back for a third year as her project is thoughtful, engaging, and aligns with the Bronx  Museum’s core values and goals.

Bronx CommuniTea will be part of the Bronx Museum’s Senior Programs. The Bronx Museum is committed to supporting all members of our diverse community with unique and tailored programming, and we see Brody’s work as an ideal way to provide ongoing engagement with our senior museum visitors.”

“Engaging and interactive tea ceremonies hosted by Michele Brody allowed the Prescott community to become participants in the exhibition process. Friends, families, groups of artists and individual community members arrived at the gallery to drink tea and document their experiences. Their stories, poetry and drawings made on tea sacs were assembled into a tea quilt.”
