Event description

Description


For 50 years, Los Angeles-based designers Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman played a central role in the distinctive aesthetic of California mid-century modernism. Employing their deep knowledge of fine art, traditional craft, and design, the couple created a body of work remarkable for its diversity of styles, techniques, and materials.

In this one-night pop-up exhibit at Design Within Reach, enjoy a bite and glass of wine, then browse through local valley collectors' examples of the Ackerman's mosaics and tapestries. At 7 we'll screen the 22-minute documentary on this dynamic power couple of California Modern Design. Laura will wrap up with a personal talk about "Growing Up Modern." Filmmaker Katie Nartonis will also be present. Enter to win a signed copy of the book Hand-in-Hand at the end of the night.

An exclusive collection of Jenev ceramics designed in 1953 and recently reissued are available for order from DWR.

Ample free parking. Seats are limited. Refunds up to 7 days before the event (minus Eventbrite ticketing fee).
