"Co-created in partnership with Eames Office, the exhibit features new information on Ray’s early life in Sacramento and work produced prior to meeting Charles in 1941, as based upon research conducted by Carla Hartman, Education Director of Eames Office, which played a central role in the project's development. In addition, the exhibit also chronicles well-known Eames Office projects produced by Ray and Charles from 1941-1988, providing new insight on Ray's ground-breaking role as the equal partner of Charles.

The California Museum celebrates the centennial of legendary designer Ray Eames, this all-new exhibition is the first to explore the early life and work of the Sacramento native.

Including over 100 original works and rarely-seen artifacts from Eames Office and the Eames family's collections, the exhibit provides a new perspective on Ray’s 60-year career in the arts, along with her significance in history as one of the 20th century’s most influential—yet largely unknown—artists, whose influence continues to shape design today."
