Holding Your Drink

Holding Your Drink A student curated exhibition housed in Drexel University’s Main Building. On display December 8th, However, how and why we drink is different around the world.

Drinking is a necessary human activity, whether for hydration, pleasure, socializing, or rituals. Here, you will become more familiar with vessels used for drinking, as well as their multiple functions, materials, and ritualistic meanings. In one room, ritualistic drinking vessels take the stage. Whether in a highly regimented Chinese ancestral ritual or an English tea service, drinking is done in

a calculated manner. In another room, manufactured luxury goods show how cultures work to make their vessels suitably lavish. In a third room, drinking vessels are presented and categorized based on their associated beverages: beans (either coffee or chocolate), leaves (tea), grains (beer/spirits), and grapes (wine, of course!). Overall, the vessels we use to drink are more valuable to us than you may realize. Their importance lies not just in the liquids they hold, but in the meanings we give them. Cheers!
