Mingei International Museum

Mingei is Japanese for "art of the people" and is used to describe everyday items that are also wonderful arts and crafts. The arts of daily lives are represented at the Mingei International Museum, but the museum doesn't only highlight the everyday art of the Japanese, as there is art from cultures and countries around the world and from historic and contemporary artists. Visitors can see many of the objects in their digital form on their website. The artist in the current exhibition "Sonabai: Another Way of Seeing", is clay sculptor Sonabai Rajawar, and there are also some selections from four artists who studied under Rajawar. Her clay animals are whimsical, yet were born of her forced isolation in rural India for 15 years. She has since been honored in India and around the world. There are several other exhibitions visitors can view online, along with a calendar of events, a place to sign up for the museum's newsletter, and additional links to past and future exhibits.
