The Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM), was incorporated in 1973 and began formal museum operations in 1975. It is the successor to the commercial gallery, The Egg and The Eye, which opened in 1965 in the same historic building. Like the present-day museum, the gallery showed contemporary craft objects and folk art. A popular restaurant on the mezzanine featured a long list of ethnically inspired omelettes. When the commercial gallery was converted to a private, nonprofit museum, the restaurant took the name of the former gallery, The Egg and The Eye.

dbo:abstract
  • Het Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) is een kunstmuseum in Los Angeles, in de Amerikaanse staat Californië. Het werd in 1973 opgericht en opende de deuren in 1975. Het is de opvolger van de galerij en restaurant The Egg and the Eye, dat in 1965 in hetzelfde historische gebouw (ontworpen door Gilbert Stanley Underwood) opende. Het museum probeert de bezoekers een nieuwe kijk te bieden op kunst, handwerk en folk. Het CAFAM ligt aan Wilshire Boulevard, recht tegenover de La Brea-teerputten in het Hancock Park, waar zich ook het Los Angeles County Museum of Art bevindt. Het museum ligt in het gebied van Los Angeles dat bekendstaat als Miracle Mile, een onderdeel van het Mid-Wilshire-district. (nl)
