Made in America: Craft Icons of the 50 States

Runs September 19 through February 21.

Curated by Director Rob Sidner, this exhibition is over two years in the making and features traditional and contemporary iconic craft icons that represent each of our 50 states. This artwork highlights distinctive materials, excellence of workmanship, and makers’ imaginations. Exploring regional and national craft traditions while expressing each state’s unique contribution to the richness of the American experience, this exhibition celebrates the variety of craft found in America.


Asafo Flags from Ghana

Runs February 6 through July 10.

This exhibition features 36 flags from West Africa. A recent donation to Mingei International, these colorful flags dating to the late 19th and 20th Centuries feature graphic folk imagery and appliqued designs over a background of dyed cotton cloth. They were commissioned by military organizations known as asafo, or “companies,” whose primary role was to exert power, exercise political influence, and maintain codes of conduct within Fante communities.
