How do you live a life with creativity, open to inspiration, exploration and joy? The lives of Charles & Ray Eames, famous designers, and the subjects of Bill Jersey’s American Masters biography EAMES: THE ARCHITECT AND THE PAINTER, have left a rich and inspiring legacy that explores this question.
Join us for dinner at Chimney Hill Inn where we will watch a 20-minute segment of EAMES: THE ARCHITECT AND THE PAINTER, a sneak-peek at the film before it premieres this winter on PBS! And then, enjoy Q & A with Emmy-Award winning and Oscar-nominated documentary Producer, Bill Jersey, on the film, and his own creative path.
