The SFO Museum at San Francisco International Airport is hosting an exhibition of traditional Japanese arts – mingei – in the International Terminal Main Hall through January 2016.
The objects on view include lanterns, fans, iron kettles and toys and are on loan from the Mingei International Museum in San Diego, which collects and exhibits the arts of daily use.
