Member Profile: Linda Thieben
This month, CAFAM member and dedicated volunteer Linda Thieben celebrates her 75th birthday and we're so grateful for her continued support of the museum. Happy birthday, Linda!
First Encounters: A native Angeleno, Linda recalls CAFAM before it was CAFAM, and before it was The Egg & The Eye – with a sly smile, she recalls Frida Schroeder's lemon coconut cake that delighted her as a little girl.
Back Again: Linda found her way back to CAFAM through her multi-faceted philanthropic involvement, including work with the Culver City Chamber Board and the West Side Children's Center, which brought her to the museum's most recent Craft Affair gala. At the time, she was looking for more volunteer work and as she says, “everything was just coming together.” She's been a reliable and devoted volunteer since!
Favorite Exhibition: Linda loved last winter's exhibition Clare Graham & MorYork: The Answer is Yes, which re-imagined the Highland Park artist and collector's studio in the museum's third floor gallery. “I loved his exhibit,” she says, “I brought my kids here and made it a point to everyone to come visit.”
Last Words: “I tell everybody about the museum – it's the best kept secret.”
Craft & Folk Art Museum is celebrating our 50th Anniversary on Museum Row. The Craft Affair, which includes a cocktail reception and silent auction, will celebrate the A.F. Gilmore Company and artist Phyllis Green. Each of these honorees has made monumental contributions to the museum and to the community.
