Who are the Folk? The folks at the Craft and Folk Art Museum of Los Angeles (CAFAM) asked 100 Angelenos that question as part of their Folk Art Everywhere project -- a city wide exhibit that places "escaped artwork" in 25 non-museum locations around town.

Project manager Heidi Zeller says the goal of the video is to encourage people to create profiles of their own neighborhood 'folk,' by making videos and writing about it. She follows, "the Census may count you, but who ARE you? Who are your neighbors? Tell us!"

Catch the current collection of Folk Art Everywhere before the winter rotation begins in early December. CAFAM also has two new in-house exhibits, Borderlandia and The Birth of Coffee.
