The Arts

Explore the ancient art form of calligraphy with acclaimed artist Mike Mei. Observe how a few graceful brush strokes can bring words to life. Learn about the different styles and techniques of Chinese calligraphy. Join in and take home a small calligraphy artwork of your own.

Mei has presented more than 25 solo shows including at Harvard University and in New York, Chicago and Beijing, among other cities. His art works Dragon, The Blue Waves are Rippling, Quiet to See All, and others are in the collections of the Worcester Art Museum and Peabody Essex Museum. Mei has delivered courses and lectures at Wellesley College, MIT, and other schools throughout New England. To celebrate the Millennium 2000, Mayor Raymond Flynn invited Mei to write a tablet of calligraphy to be displayed at the gateway of Boston’s Chinatown. Mei’s publications include calendars and books of calligraphy and poems.
