Join artist Lexa Walsh for tea, refreshments, and conversation about the subject of war and its complexities.
Consolidated Mess: Tea Talk
Lexa Walsh's 'Tea Talks' are a chance for community members to discuss sensitive issues over an afternoon tea. For the final event of Consolidated Mess, Walsh invites service members, veterans, their families and those affected by war, and interested community members who would like to engage in the subject of war and its complexities. Tea will be poured in artist Ehren Tool's custom cups, and plentiful treats will be served. After tea, Ehren's cups will be distributed for free to attendees. A short publication will be produced after the event and shared among participants.
