A Marriage of Craft and Design
This three-part series, inspired by the museum's exhibition Masters of Mid-Century Modernism—Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman, will present three films that encapsulate the era of 1950s and '60s entertaining, design, and archetypal characters. The films screened will be Pillow Talk (1959), Our Man Flint (1966), and The Party (1968). Arrive at 6pm for a film-inspired cocktail, craft and exhibition viewing.
This exhibition chronicles the journey of two immensely creative individuals from their independent studio training through their 50-year career as highly successful production designers. These Los Angeles-based artists, now in their eighties, shared their interest in, and devotion to, the principles of modern design. Using their deep knowledge of art history, traditional craft and folk art, the Ackermans have created a body of work remarkable for its diversity of styles, techniques and materials.
