Charles & Ray Eames documentary now online!

11 Jan

Watch Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter on PBS.org

Last month, the Mimomito staff was lucky enough to join SacMod and AIACV for their screening of Charles & Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter. Well, no need to purchase or wait for PBS to run it again, it is now online for your viewing pleasure! So pull a couch up to your computer, don’t get any popcorn in your keyboard, and enjoy!

Here are some photos from SacMod and AIACV’s screening.
It was a packed house! And Ian of SacMod surprised us all with a Skype session with the Eames’ grandson, Eames Demetrios. He told us a bit about his Grandmother Ray, and what a sunny and wonderful person she was. It was a great way to begin the documentary.

Herman Miller lent some comfortable seating for the show.

If you’re interested in more screenings and movies, follow SacMod on Facebook! This month, January 22nd, is INFINITE SPACE: The Architecture of John Lautner. Hope to see you there, too!

Our friend GretchenΒ is helping put on a showing of Visual Acoustics at the Crocker Art Museum. Stop by and say hello.

From the Facebook event page:

A special screening of the documentary “Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman” will be held at the Crocker Art Museum on Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 7:00 PM. This film celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, whose photographs brought modern architecture and progressive architects into American mainstream. Director Eric Bricker will introduce the film and lead a post-screening discussion. Anyone with an inter…est in Modernism, photography, architecture, and design should enjoy this film.

Part of Crocker Art Museum’s Film Frame series during “Thursdays ’til 9”, Visual Acoustics is being presented in collaboration with SacMod — an organization dedicated to promoting, preserving and protecting modern art, architecture and design in the Sacramento region — and AIA Central Valley, the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Tickets to the event are $6 for Crocker Art Museum members and $12 for non-members. Admission to the film includes admission to the museum, which will be open until 9:00pm.
