Toying with Design

Explore how play inspires designers and architects to create toy-like, functional everyday objects in the exhibition, Toying with Design. On view at Mingei International Museum in conjunction with this year’s Design Week theme, Design=Inspiration/Inspiración, this exhibition encourages viewers to consider what influences their work and how their work motivates others–giving rise to new ideas.

This exhibition is co-curated by Patricia Cué, Creative Director at Mingei International Museum, and Susan Merritt, Professor Emerita of the School of Art and Design at San Diego State University.
