Discover how the inspired design elements in Mingei’s Art Library come together to form a cohesive functional space where studio furniture, sustainable wood floors, a reclaimed timber desk, “beauty and the beast” ladders, quirky lamps, and a carved palace all coexist. The tour will begin on the Gallery Level of the Museum, just outside of the Art Library and continues inside the Library, where floor-to-ceiling Vitsoe shelving units house a specialized collection of more than 12,000 art reference materials that align with the Museum’s focus on folk art, craft, and design. The tour concludes with a walk through the Library’s door to the north terrace with views overlooking Balboa Park.
