For its third year, the UC Davis Global Tea Initiative Symposium was expanded to two days with tea scholars and researchers, purveyors and growers gathering to talk tea.

The annual Templeton Colloquium in Art History at UC Davis will journey across oceans and centuries for “The Power of Color: Polychromy and Pigments in Ancient Mediterranean And Latin American Art.”
The role of monuments to the Confederacy, and the recent movement to remove them, will be the core subject of two UC Davis events in January.
UC Davis will break down the walls of the exhibition box with “from this point forward,” a multidisciplinary exhibition by 28 graduate students will include students in art and art history, design, music, theatre, and creative writing.
Neal Benezra and Jock Reyonlds have been leading major museums for years, but in the 1970s both were graduate students at UC Davis. Both were back at UC Davis recently talking about the role of the university versus the civic museum, their time studying here and what they saw as possibilities for their talk’s venue—the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art.
They lead major museums, but the directors of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Yale University Art Gallery have another thing in common – both attended UC Davis.
“The Life and Afterlife of Ancient Roman Architecture,” the fifth installment of the Templeton Colloquium in Art History, took place at UC Davis Feb. 10.

The long-running Art Studio Visiting Artist Lecture Series at UC Davis has a bigger lineup than usual along with a new, more public location for the new year. The series, featuring a wide range of artists and art scholars, will be held in the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art.
