Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM)

Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) Review

This small but important cultural landmark in the city pioneered support for traditional folk arts. These days, the two-story space takes on a global scope, embracing international contemporary crafts, social movements, and long-established artisan work. The gallery space mounts rotating exhibitions where you might see anything from costumes of carnival celebrations around the world to Mennonite quilts. The courtyard area provides a tranquil space for periodic exhibits and opening receptions. Be sure to take a look around the ground-level gift shop for unique collection of handcrafts, jewelry, ceramics, books, and textiles.
