Presented by Craft in America and the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) as part of the Getty initiative Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945 – 1980, Golden State of Craft: California 1960 – 1985 surveys an extraordinary, innovative artistic period that blossomed in post-World War II California. Promoted in large part by two central figures—Edith Wyle, founder of the Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum and Eudorah M. Moore, director of the Pasadena Art Museum’s California Design exhibition series—an inspired group of artists made significant contributions to the American Craft Movement, the art world at large, and influenced modern American taste overall.
