"Lively, gratifying...appropriately busy and abundant: full of objects, information, stories and people, organized with hectic elegance." -
A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"It's the chair we see first, a stunning Eames lounge chair, and that's as it should be...there couldn't be a better time to examine the complex and absorbing history of this designing couple, and Eames: The Architect and the Painter couldn't be a better vehicle for that examination." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America's most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life -from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age - has been less widely understood. Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film since their death dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work. Presented in partnership with the South East Iowa Architects Section; Eames prize provided by Pigott!
