AAM Holiday Luncheon At The Metropolitan Club

Monday December 10, 2018 was a delightful day for the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco’s annual docent holiday party. Thank you to Elizabeth Green-Sah for the invitation to perform for this lovely group of people at a most elegant venue. At Elizabeth’s request, Vanessa transformed into Erik Chalfant right before the audience’s very eyes, with the keen assistance of Dr. Jay Xu, Director of AAM San Francisco. This special moment only punctuated the gender-fluid aesthetic of numerous Asian deities housed in the museum’s collections. The program ended with a rousing audience sing-along led by Erik, which included familiar Christmas songs, Chanukah tunes and even a Kwaanza folk song. Tom Shaw at piano was as articulate and fabulous as ever. Happy Holidays to all of my new friends at AAM!
