Mingei of Japan: The Legacy of Its Founders

3/8/2006; 28 minutes

"Mingei" is a Japanese word meaning "art of the people." This documentary traces the establishment and growth of the "Mingei Movement," founded in the early 1990s to encourage the fabrication of hand-made objects for everyday use. The acceptance of this philosophy world-wide eventually led to the establishment of San Diego's Mingei International Museum. (#11519)
