EAMES: The Architect and The Painter
Thursday, November 17, 2011, 7:30pm, Steinberg Auditorium
Centro is proud to co-sponsor the exclusive St. Louis screening of "Eames: The Architect and The Painter". The husband-and-wife team of Charles (hamming it up, above) and Ray Eames were America’s most influential and important industrial designers. Admired for their creations and fascinating as individuals, they have risen to iconic status in American culture. “Eames: The Architect and The Painter” – narrated by James Franco – draws from a treasure trove of archival material, including excerpts from their many films, and uses new interviews with friends, colleagues, and experts to both capture the personal story of the couple and place them firmly in the context of their times. A native of St. Louis, Charles Eames attended Washington University’s School of Architecture, and the film appropriately screens at the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts’ Steinberg Auditorium. Co-director Jason Cohn will be in attendance. The evening's program also features a selection of the Eames' own films.
Tickets are $12.00 at Steinberg Auditorium 30 minutes before show time. Advance tickets are for sale at the Tivoli box office from 5-10 pm Monday - Thursday. No phone or online sales.
