Mingei International Museum: Zenaida Rafael Julian

Mingei International  Museum off-site installation  is on loan  to the
Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery,
The installation is a colorful restaurant scene created by artesana Zenaida Rafael Julián from Ocumicho, Mexico  Created in 2006, this elaborately conceived work depicts a bustling restaurant at lunchtime, with four tables of hungry diners eating tacos, burritos and sopes, while busy waitresses, a tortilla maker, and other figures enliven the scene.

The Mingei International Museum is embarking upon a major renovation of its Balboa Park facility. Their doors are now closed to the public for the next year. But don’t worry, you will be able to find them elsewhere over the next year, including at Liberty Station.
