Mingei International Museum

Collection Description

Mingei International Museum is dedicated to furthering the understanding of art of the people (mingei) from all eras and cultures of the world. This art shares a direct simplicity and reflects a joy in making, by hand, useful objects of timeless beauty that are satisfying to the human spirit. The Museum collects, conserves and exhibits these arts of daily life – by unknown craftsmen of ancient times, from traditional cultures of past and present and by historical and contemporary designers

The Mingei International Museum's digital collection at California Revealed consists of texts, moving images, and still images from the mid-1960s to the present. The collection includes many photographs and texts documenting museum exhibitions related to subjects such as California Fibers, Arline Fisch, Laura Anderson, and Jackie Matisse.
