The Museum of Photographic Arts
The Museum of Photographic Arts is a photography museum that lies in the historic area of Balboa Park, San Diego. First founded in 1974, The Museum of Photographic Arts is only one of three museums in the United States dedicated exclusively to the collection and preservation of photography. The museum has a written mission to inspire, educate, and engage the broadest possible audience through presentation, collection, and preservation of photography, film, and video.
The San Diego Museum of Art
The main exhibits in The San Diego Museum of Art (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Diego_Museum_of_Art) are very encyclopedic in nature and range through history, from 5000 BC to 2012 AD. Spanish works are seen throughout the museum and include popular Spanish artists Murillo, Zurbaran, Cotan, Ribera, and El Greco. The museum’s first major acquisition was the 1939 purchase of Francisco Goya’s El Marques de Sofraga, which had never before been placed for public view.
The Mingei International Museum
The Mingei International Museum conserves, collects, and exhibits folk art, craft, and design, mostly specializing in works from Japan. The Museum was first founded in 1974, and the building was opened to the public four years later. Founder Martha Longenecker used the word Mingei for the name of the museum, a term coined by Dr. Soetsu Yanagi by combining the Japanese words for all people and art, min and gei respectively.
