Mingei doesn’t just celebrate art; we celebrate the “every-day-ness” of art…the belief that everyday objects and materials that often serve a useful purpose can also be objects of great beauty. We believe that art can happen anywhere… in any culture, in any place, created by any person.
Do you believe these things too?
We invite you to become a member of Mingei International Museum and experience superb folk art, craft and design all year long. Preview Museum exhibitions, meet designer craftsmen, curators and collectors, and attend lectures, symposiums, demonstrations and art excursions – all while helping to support Mingei International Museum’s superb exhibitions and quality education programs.
