Drawn from the collection of Mingei International Museum and other institutional and private collections, this exhibition draws the eye to the art of music making, sharing the beautiful form and design details of musical instruments, bells, gongs, rattles, whistles and noisemakers from cultures across the world. Visitors moving through the exhibition will also be able to listen to recordings of a number of exotic instruments.
Join us for several “Pop-Up” performances in the gallery during this exhibition.
