I wanted to see the US-Mexico Border exhibit produced in conjunction with Pacific Standard Time. Several contemporary pieces were on display, mostly made by US based artist an some Mexican artisits. I saw one piece made by a Guatemalan. In most cases these pieces were produced as commentary about the border. Some pieces were pretty to look at. Others not, but thought provoking. The exhibit was on the second and third floors. There is a nice gift shop. I parked on eighth street where 2 hour parking is free. On Sunday, entrance to the museum is by donation. This museum is across the street from LACMA. If you want to take in more art, you can always head over there.

Although there is not too much to this small museum (one floor of art when we were there), it does offer an interesting view of the Latino culture in particular in LA. There are some outstanding pieces.
And the outside of the building is fabulous.

The Craft and Folk Art Museum is a refuge from the main-stream commercialism of LACMA and the Peterson Auto museums, a return to art at it's base. Well curated exhibits highlight interesting themes, materials, and under-appreciated folk, craft and contemporary artists.

We were at the La Brea Tar Pits and decided to visit here as it was across the road. This museum is very small so it doesn't take a long time to do. But it's interesting and always good to support smaller artists. The gift shop is lovely, so many beautiful things to buy. If you live in LA or even if you're visiting, the gift shop alone would be worth checking out if you want to get something unique or fun

Some lovely and interesting things but I was hoping that it would be a bit bigger and the restaurant is no longer there. However, I enjoyed what they had on exhibit there and would recommend. Takes less than an hour. Some other restaurants are near by.
