The California African American Museum at 600 State Drive in Exposition Park, Los Angeles presents paintings and other works of art by African American artists. We visited the special exhibit "Places of Validation" which shows until April 1, 2012, an intriguing selection of beautiful works very well presented. The staff is especially welcoming and knowledgeable. The space is in a modern building whose design and flow makes it easy for the visitor to see a lot in a short time. Parking is available nearby. Budget-friendly restaurants are across the street or in the nearby California Science Center or the Natural History Museum (also great places for kids) . If you're museum-hopping, check out the Fisher Museum on the USC campus across Exposition Blvd.
