Be Water, My Friend @ Wing Luke


📸: Wing Luke Museum

In Be Water, My Friend, Wing Luke Museum explores a question I’m now asking myself: WWBLD? What would Bruce Lee do in these chaotic times we’re living through? This addition to the existing exhibit launched in mid-July, and it takes a rare inward look at how the martial arts icon developed the philosophy behind his iconic quote.

Lee was highly curious and just as rigorous in his mental and spiritual practice as in his physical training. His collection of 2,800 books (some titles: Psychology of CoachingThe Success System That Never Fails) currently resides at the museum for cataloging and care, with many on display. The team behind the interactive art experience, Meow Wolf, built the interactive technology at the calm heart of the exhibit. Enter Bruce’s mind via passages from his library, and learn about how those writings influenced his life and work. 

It’s an ideal opportunity for feel-good convos with your dad, brother, or best friend. Adult tickets to the museum are $17; current hours are Wednesdays – Sundays, 10 am – 5 pm. After your visit, drive up to Capitol Hill’s Lake View Cemetery to pay tribute—Lee was laid to rest there in 1973.
