We discovered the Mingei on a free museum Tuesday. And, we keep coming back. First, the staff and volunteers are wonderful and so helpful. Second, each exhibit is expertly curated so the theme flows from piece to piece to piece. And, most importantly, the often ordinary is taken to the level of the work of a master craftsman. In the current exhibit, there are two guitars. So, what? A six string guitar is commonplace. But, these two are limited edition Taylor made beauties with mother of pearl, abalone shell, and a variety of exotic woods. These are something special to look at. Takings the ordinary and elevating it to the sublime is what Mingei exhibits are all about.
