Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles

 

Took a day off to visit the Craft and Folk Art Museum with my friend Tosha Eason.

The first exhibit we saw was Shadow of the Turning, an exhibit by Vietnamese artist Binh Pho that illustrates stories through a combination of woodturning, sculpture, painting, and art glass. The detailing is incredible.

 

We then checked out Paperworks, an exhibition featuring a diverse range of contemporary artists who use paper-cutting techniques to create large and small-scale sculptural works. Lots of great photo ops. This black and white installation was one of my favorites.

The intimate, atypical museum space at CAFAM create an atmosphere of genuine excitement and delight. And the facade of the building is amazing–a piece of art in itself. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday and admission is $7. On Sundays you pay what you want! PS: The Shop at CAFAM is great! Lots of gift ideas.
