Screening: Eames – The Architect And The Painter At Crest Theater, Sacramento

Charles and Ray Eames

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.
