0

The Mingei Museum in Balboa Park has a Folk Art Studio on December 11th from 1-4 p.m. Participants can make gifts inspired by the museum’s current exhibitions. For more information visit http://www.mingei.org/events_travel/calendar/948.

While you are at the museum check out the exhibit Between East and West – Folk Art Treasures of Romania on view until April 2011.

The elegant display reveals the rich cultural heritage of Romania through woodworking, clothing, textiles, decorated eggs and more.  The spirit of the artisans is evident in the exhibition transporting viewers back in time, until the only thing missing is traditional music.
