Located in the heart of Mid-City Los Angeles, this museum presents some of the most expertly curated shows around. Launched in 1965 as The Egg and The Eye, an avant-garde café and shop, it now exhibits handmade art, from sculpture to textile to yarn bombing. The small, intimate space is attended by a gift shop, where you can buy smaller scale crafts and find presents for the DIYers in your circle.
