Be part of our story.

2018 has been an exciting year of change at Mingei. As we closed our doors in September for a year-long renovation, we also initiated a robust series of offsite programs, including monthly Family Sunday events at area libraries and “Mingei Away” classroom visits at schools across San Diego. While construction begins on the renovation, we are looking ahead to the future: a dedicated classroom and education space, a new theater, a plaza level free to all and newly accessible terraces are just some of the ways the transformation will open Mingei to the community.

It is only with your support that we are able to continue serving the community, even while the physical Museum is closed. This year we invite you to contribute towards a special end-of-year appeal to support vital components of the Museum’s new Education Center. The center will provide space for making, learning and diving deeper into the creative process.

Your generous gift will ensure that San Diego’s children and learners of all ages will experience a greatly expanded roster of hands-on education programs and inspiring craft workshops at a transformed Mingei.
