Craft and Folk Art Museum
The museum serves Los Angeles through its mission to champion cultural understanding by encouraging curiosity about our diverse world through the universal lens of art. CAFAM is the only museum in Los Angeles dedicated solely to the support of contemporary craft and folk artists.
This grant will partially underwrite the exhibition of work of the contemporary Guatemalan artist Dario Escobar. He modifies and shapes sports equipment into installations and sculptures, using traditional Guatemalan artisanal techniques and mythological references. The show will run from May 18 through August 31, 2014.
