Ray Eames Exhibit
by Inge Horton

On the occasion of her 101st birthday on December 15, the California Museum in Sacramento is showing an exhibition on Ray Eames nee Kaiser, a native of Sacramento. Don’t miss to see the innovative and stimulating work of Ray Eames who is often overlooked when exhibited with her husband Charles Eames. It includes her rarely shown early work of paintings and examples of her own designs of her wardrobe and shoes. Although the exhibit on her daughter’s and granddaughter’s art work ended on December 1, the Ray Eames exhibit will be shown until February 23, 2014 and there will be a birthday celebration and workshop on Saturday, December 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Museum’s hours and admission prices are here.

Visiting the California Museum will also offer a chance to see the permanent exhibit of California’s Remarkable Women. This show was initiated by former First Lady Maria Shriver and presents outstanding women from various fields such as space, science, arts, business, and community leadership. Of course, Julia Morgan is presented but in a somewhat separate spot and not in visual proximity of the model of Hearst Castle which Morgan and William Randolph Hearst commissioned from Julian C. Mesic.
