Craft & Folk Art Museum

Serving Los Angeles for over forty years in the city’s historic Miracle Mile district, the Craft & Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles is dedicated to celebrat­ing contemporary and traditional craft and folk art. Founded as a popular art gallery and restaurant in 1965, The Egg and the Eye became a not-for-profit museum in 1973. In the decades that followed, the Craft & Folk Art Museum solidly established its position as an exhibition and research entity in Southern California for folk art and craft. As Los Angeles developed as an important international art center, the Craft & Folk Art Museum continued to present indigenous global art forms and to support the careers of now well-known craft artists including Sam Maloof, Otto and Vivika Heino, and Beatrice Wood.
