THE WORLD OF CHARLES AND RAY EAMES
Saturday, February 16
Meet at the Petaluma Arts Center, 9:00am
Climb aboard the Art Bus to visit “The World of Charles and Ray Eames” now on exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California.
Fueled by their belief in design as a way of life, the innovative husband and wife duo Charles and Ray Eames were two of the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Go beyond their most well-known designs in this intimate and inspiring exhibition portraying their legacy and lives in California. The Eameses—who founded The Eames Office—valued knowledge and discovery, embraced the joy of trial and error, and saw no separation between life and work. Through multi-media installations, films, rare prototypes, photography, furniture, toys, products, as well as personal letters, drawings, and artwork, discover the story of the Eameses from a fresh perspective. Explore the breadth of their work across many fields in this interactive exhibition that brings their ideas and playful spirit to life.
This trip on the Art Bus will be extra special because our docent for this visit is the granddaughter and curator of the Eames collection, Llisa Demetrios. Llisa is an artist in her own right and a member of the Petaluma Art Center Board of Directors. Llisa is also a member of PAC’s Exhibition Committee and curator of last year’s blockbuster exhibition, “The Power of Ten.”
The Art Bus will leave the Arts Center at 9:30 am. Parking is limited
Fee for this very special trip is $18 for non-members and $15 for members. Entrance fee for the exhibition is $14.00 for adults and $9.00 for seniors. These are special group rates.
