Mingei International Museum is excited, once again, to be partnering with the Allied Craftsmen of San Diego to curate the exhibition Metamorphosis.  Members of the Allied Craftsmen are invited to submit new artwork to be juried by Mingei staff to form the exhibition.  The theme of 2019’s exhibition will be Metamorphosis to align with the museum’s major renovation project, currently underway in Balboa Park.  The exhibition will be on view at the City Gallery at San Diego City College.
At the heart of Mingei International Museum are stunning exhibitions of folk art, design and craft that exude human creativity and spirit.
