Bubbles on Members Appreciation Day

Bubbles at the 2011 Eames Foundation Members Appreciation Day

Each year on Members Appreciation Day, the Eames Foundation invites its members to experience the Eames House in a special and unique way.  It’s an opportunity to experience the House as a guest, take an interior guided tour, enjoy a delicious lunch and participate in a variety of activities.

On Members Appreciation Day this past May, guests created moebius strips, made their own House of Cards and vied for first place in both a bean count and bubble blowing competition.  All the activities were related to the Eames Office’s exhibition Essential Eames: The Design of Knowledge.  This show explores the classic yet contemporary educational philosophies of Charles and Ray Eames through an intimate look at their films, exhibitions, presentations, and former staff members’ recollections.

On October 13, your are invited to join us in raising a glass to the exhibit’s newly arrived stars: the Probability Machine and Celestial Mechanics.  Three additional components from the original 1961 exhibition, Mathematica: A World of Numbers . . . and Beyond, are also featured: the Moebius Strip, History Wall and Image Wall.  For more information, call 310.396.5991.
