Voluminous Art

Treasures from San Diego's University Libraries

This spring, Mingei International Museum will shine a spotlight on the lesser-known libraries of UC San Diego, San Diego State University and University of San Diego. VOLUMINOUS ART – Treasures from San Diego’s University Libraries will celebrate the art of the book by showcasing approximately 25 volumes from each library collection, a sampling that will hint at centuries-old practices of book design, typography, binding and printing.

Generally defined as a subgenre of speculative fiction, Steampunk is science fiction and fantasy where early industrial technology is steam-powered and based in Victorian and Edwardian eras as epitomized in the works of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Steampunk incorporates fashion, design, art, music, vehicle creations, literature, and more into its sensibilities: a stunning view of what could have been.

Now through October 7, 2018.
