When was the last time you partied on the patio of the Craft & Folk Art Museum? Oh, never? Well, you won't be able to say that ever again! CAFAM is located right across the street from LACMA and the La Brea Tarpits, in the shadows of the Petersen Automotive Museum. Not only does the museum feature amazing exhibits, CAFAM has one of Southern California's best museum shops!
Two brand-spankin' new exhibitions will be unveiled at CAFAM shortly before the event:
Opening at the height of baseball season, Baseball: The All-American Game explores the influence of baseball on American folk art made between the late-1800s to present day. For the first time in Los Angeles, the public will have access to the largest exhibition of baseball-related traditional folk art since the American Folk Art Museum’s historic Perfect Game: America Looks at Baseball in 2003. Approximately 75 works of baseball-inspired folk art and memorabilia will be shown from the private collection of Gary Cypres, owner of one of the largest sports memorabilia collections in the world.
Ehren Tool: Production or Destruction is a solo exhibition of ceramist and former Marine Ehren Tool. Emblazoned with the haunting images of armed conflict, Tool creates handmade ceramic cups as a medium to address war and the violent rhetoric and imagery used to perpetuate it. The exhibition will feature 1,000 handcrafted cups, video, installation, photographs, and printed materials.
TICKET INCLUDES: Museum Entrance! Drink ticket! (Drinks provided by Smog City Brewing Company; Peet's Coffee Westwood Village) Music! Giveaways! Access to two food trucks! (Lobsta Truck; Sprinkles Cupcakes) PLUS other surprises...!
