The new documentary on Charles and Ray Eames, The Architect and the Painter, will get its own San Diego screening December 15th prior to national broadcast on PBS, thanks to Modern San Diego, the Mingei, and KPBS! You’ll need to RSVP though the site, as seats in the museum’s theater are rather limited.
I’m excited for the screening because, 1) I missed last weekend’s accumulation of excellent events (Delawie house tours, ObjectsUSA show, etc) while away for work in New Orleans, and 2) the holiday season, rendered in a more sustainable, community manner, must embrace craft. And craft is the story. Or, at least, modifying mass production in the name of the human spirit and creativity.
Hope to see you there!
