Mingei / Mingei

Mingei of Japan at the Mingei International Museum

It probably isn't a surprise that the Mingei museum has a fantastic collection of Mingei artifacts. This included a number of recent acquisitions. The exhibit was curated by the museum's director, Rob Sidner.
Soetsu Yanagi’s writings are on the walls. He, along with Shoji Hamada and Kawai Kawai Kanjiro, are the fathers of the Japanese Mingei movement.
 Soetsu is also the father of Sori Yanagi. Here is baby Sori in 1915.
