True art flows from an artist’s passion to create.
That passion is now being celebrated at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park. The exhibition is called This is Our Story.
The artists in this exhibition were not professionally trained. Their works used to be called folk art. Today’s experts call it vernacular art. It is art by ordinary people.
The art of This is Our Story has personality. It is unashamed, happy, in no way conceited. It comes from personal experience, imagination, and hands that love to be moving. It is art that loves to be alive.
You won’t find a Rembrandt in this exhibition. But you will enjoy glimpses of many unique stories.
This is Our Story concludes on February 26, 2023.
