Mingei International Museum
1439 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101
Tuesday - Sunday 10am-5pm

Opens February 7, 2015 on view through July 5, 2015

From the Mingei website:  "This exhibition presents over 100 unique handmade African-American dolls made between 1850 and 1940. Faithful yet stylized representations of young and old African Americans, the dolls portray playful boys and girls, finely dressed gentlemen and elegant young ladies, distinguished older men and stately, determined women of mature years. The dolls are believed to have been created by African Americans for children that they knew‒members of their own families and communities as well as white children in their charge. Embroidered, stitched and painted faces express a variety of emotions–surprise, puzzlement, contentment and joy."  Click here to read more.
