The California African American Museum (CAAM) in Exposition Park explores the art, history, and culture of African Americans, with an emphasis on California and the West. In addition to presenting a dynamic slate of exhibitions and public programs, CAAM houses a permanent collection of more than five thousand works of art, artifacts, and historical documents, and a research library. Admission is free.



See “Deborah Roberts: I’m,” an exhibition in two parts at CAAM and Art + Practice. The walls of CAAM’s expansive lobby are covered in a large-scale mural by Roberts entitled Little man, little man (2020). It features collaged images of a young Black boy in animated expressions of joy, a fitting image for KCRW’s Summer Nights at CAAM!



The Metro Expo line stop Expo Park/USC is a five-minute walk through the Rose Garden to the Museum! Evening parking in Exposition Park is $18: please enter at 39th and Figueroa Streets.
