An Afternoon of LA Stories Typed Before Your Eyes

Located at the Craft and Folk Art Museum

Bring your favorite Los Angeles stories to the Craft and Folk Art Museum to share with local L.A. writers and other participants, who will transcribe your words into poetry and prose. Typewriting stations will be set up in the Museum Courtyard for DIY creative writing as well as meeting and working with established writers. Participants are encouraged to bring along their own typewriters to join in on this special Type-In honoring the work of Ray Bradbury and his classic novel Fahrenheit 451. As a limited and special engagement, Ray Bradbury’s personal typewriter, from the Collection of Steve Soboroff, will be on view from April 1-30. The Craft & Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) is Los Angeles’ only institution exclusively dedicated to exhibiting contemporary craft, design, and folk art. Located on the city’s historic Museum Row, CAFAM’s dynamic exhibitions feature established and emerging artists whose works create thoughtful and provocative visual exchanges between craft and contemporary art. CAFAM’s regular programs and events provide opportunities for the public to participate in art making and engage with exhibiting and local artists.
