Mingei welcomes local mid-century experts, collectors and enthusiasts Keith York from Modern San Diego and Dave Hampton and Ron Kerner from "Objects USA" to share their favorite acquisitions from the era, in conjunction with the show CRAFTING OPPORTUNITY.

Join us in the Sculpture Garden on the rooftop of Central Library to exchange stories of mid-century favorites.
