Mingei Transformation Nears Completion

Mingei International Museum will reopen to the public on September 3, 2021, exactly three years after closing for a transformative construction project. The grand reopening will reveal a new and dynamic Museum with enhancements and improvements to the 1915 Spanish Colonial style House of Charm including the addition of 10,000 square feet of space for exhibitions and programming, a theater, education center and amenities including a bistro, store and coffee bar. The total finished square footage will be over 50,000. In partnership with Mingei, the nationally recognized firm LUCE et studio envisioned the Museum’s physical transformation focusing on artist collaborations, accessibility, functionality and well-crafted and inspiring design.
