California African American Museum (CAAM)
This museum is devoted to Afrocentric artwork. It is a large space and has plenty to offer its visitors from painting to sculpture to multimedia installations by African-American artists. The owners also feature artists from the past and historical exhibits. There are many rotating exhibits as well, like the Rhythms of the Soul, a showcase of the instruments of Africa. The museum store sells artwork and other items related to the museum. Admission is free.
I went to an event there on a Sunday called Target Sundays at CAAM and it was amazing. The exhibits at the museum are pretty good but the Target Sundays program was excellent for the whole family and it was free! Music, vendors, storytelling, quilt making, arts and craft, it was great!
I visited the CAAM w/a spanish classmate as a homework assignment. She did not want to try any other museum in the area after vising this one. We both found informative topics to write on in the "traditional" african art section. I wish there would have been more to see in the traditional section for pleasure viewing.
We were surprised that it was free or donations accepted. We donated but that's great considering we're college students.
Thanks for giving our grandchildren a wonderful experience yesterday. I have wonderful pictures I want to send you. Please contact me at my e-mail address and give me an e-mail address where I can send them.
