California African American Museum field trip

Field trip to California African American Museum
The California African American Museum explores the art, history, and culture of African Americans, with an emphasis on California and the West. Located in Los Angeles' beautiful Exposition Park, CAAM features a range of dynamic, changing exhibitions and public programs for all ages and interest.

CAAM's permanent collection consists of over 4,000 objects ranging from the 1800s to the present. It encompasses paintings, photographs, film, sculpture, historical documents, and artifacts, and it spans nineteenth-century landscape paintings to modern artworks to contemporary mixed-media reflections on cultural and political events.

CAAM's deepest holdings include art made by or connected to African Americans in California and the western United States. However, the Museum also has significant works of contemporary art from the African diaspora (including Haiti, Brazil, and Jamaica), as well as traditional African art from Western, Central, and Sub-Saharan Africa. CAAM aims to represent the diverse contributions of African Americans in the United States, but also to interpret how the past has affected identity in the present.

Admission to CAAM is free.
