The first African American museum of art, history, and culture fully supported by a state, the California African American Museum, better known as CAAM, was founded in 1997 and moved in 1984 to its permanent home in Exposition Park, just south of Downtown Los Angeles.
The Museum’s permanent collection houses 5,000 objects that span landscape painting and portraiture, modern and contemporary art, historical objects and print materials, and mixed-media artworks. Though the collection emphasizes objects pertinent to California and the American West, it also houses a growing collection of artworks from the African diaspora as well as important works by African Americans from across the United States.
