"San Diego's Craft Revolution" opens on October 16th at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park.

Last week, we had curator Dave Hampton on our TV show "Evening Edition" to talk about the new Mingei exhibit. Hampton has written about San Diego's mid-century art scene for Culture Lust in the past. He recently provided us with a handy list of things you should know before going to see "San Diego's Craft Revolution."
