Enjoy member-exclusive perks and festivities while mingling with other Mingei members. Take advantage of your 10% member discount all day in Shop Mingei, with a special additional 10% off one item. With a newly stocked selection of handmade and thoughtfully designed clothing, jewelry, apparel, housewares and more, finding a special gift for a loved one (or yourself) is easy at Shop Mingei.

10:00 am - 12:00 pm*  Enjoy a warm beverage and sweet treat on the Neeley Courtyard against the backdrop of the newly installed Variations on a Gold Theme copper and enamel mural by Ellamarie and Jackson Woolley.

4:00 pm - 7:30 pm*  Spark your creativity with a tin ornament project — emboss your own silver or gold star to hang from anywhere needing a little extra glimmer.
