Situated on historic Museum Row since 1965, the Craft & Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) is an invaluable contributor to Los Angeles culture, exhibiting current artists with intriguing perspectives and distinctive practices. Exploring the leading edge of craft, art, and design, CAFAM gives audience to diverse makers and artists whose work is often not represented in larger art institutions. The museum is a place to see art and make art -- all under one roof. CAFAM coordinates a robust roster of hands-on workshops led by professional artists and makers. Uncommon discoveries are also guaranteed at the CAFAM Shop, which offers an expertly curated array of handmade items from skilled artisans. The intimate, atypical museum space and independent spirit at CAFAM combine to create an atmosphere of excitement and innovation, where people in Los Angeles deepen their relationships to art, creativity and one another.See Craft Contemporary and all Los Angeles has to offer by arranging your trip with our Los Angeles tour planner.
