Folk Art Everywhere is designed to inspire exploration of diverse
communities and neighborhoods in Los Angeles through art and culture. A
project of the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM), Folk Art Everywhere has
partnered with 25 diverse organizations and businesses to place artwork
representing cultures from around the world inside venues throughout LA
County. Think of it as a cultural treasure hunt that releases beautiful
and curious art objects from private collections and installs them in
unexpected public spaces—restaurants, parks, coffee shops, bookstores, and
cultural centers—places where people naturally gather.
