By Miyoko Ohtake / Published by Dwell

This Saturday, January 10, the Mingei International Museum in San Diego presents a lecture by Alan Bair, president and owner of Pacific Yurts Inc., titled The Yurt: Ancient Dwelling, Modern Lifestyle. In his talk, Bair will describe “the contemporary use of yurts around the world and how they reflect his belief that cross-cultural exchanges are essential for global understanding,” says the museum.

The lecture will be held from 1-3 pm at the museum’s Escondido location. Tickets are $5 for museum members and students, $10 for non-members. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 760-735-3355.
