About the Museum
Situated on historic Museum Row since 1965, the Craft & Folk Art Museum is an invaluable contributor to Los Angeles culture, exhibiting current artists with distinctive perspectives and practices. CAFAM offers compelling exhibitions that take traditional techniques in new, surprising directions, exploring the leading edge of craft, art, and design. The museum also coordinates a robust roster of hands-on workshops led by professional artists and instructors, while collaborating with community organizations throughout Los Angeles to draw artists and crafters from across the city together for work on group projects and special events. The CAFAM Shop features an expertly curated array of beautiful handmade items from skilled artisans. The intimate, atypical museum space and independent spirit at CAFAM creates an atmosphere where people in Los Angeles deepen their relationships to art, creativity, and one another.
