 Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology

Please join us for the opening reception of Pleasure, Poison, Prescription, Prayer: The Worlds of Mind-Altering Substances, a timely exhibit exploring the complex social and economic dynamics behind ten mind-altering drugs.

Drawing from the Hearst Museum’s permanent collection, this exhibit highlights the incredible range of tools people have made to process, consume, and transport mind-altering substances. Also on view are works of art inspired by these these substances which shed light on the inner visions experienced by their users. The Hearst invites visitors to question their assumptions about these substances and the communities who use them.

While you explore the exhibit, enjoy tastings and demos from:
Fabula Tea
Highwire Coffee
MeloMelo Kava Bar
