True design blends form and function. Charles and Ray Eames were among the great 20th Century American designers who conquered design challenges in almost every product available: buildings, furniture, games, toys, etc.
Narrated by James Franco, the documentary Eames: The Architect And The Painter (2011) hopes to capture the spirit of these two designers. The California Museum is sponsoring a special documentary screening at the Crest Theater (6 March 2012 at 6:30-10:00 PM PST) in commemoration of Sacramento native-Ray Eames’ 100th birthday.
