L.A.’s only public showcase devoted to contemporary craft and community-based folk art continues to broaden its programming. Shows could take in anything from Venetian glassmaking to American printmaking, the circus-themed dioramas of Sonny King to a retrospective of work by Hungarian designer Eva Zeisel.

Small yet interesting museum. My favorite part was the crafts station where you can make your own type of keychain.

It's a great small museum that showcases stuff you almost never see anywhere else. And it has a great gift shop too!
