Another mid-century architecture lecture?
On March 9th, local artist Leslie Williamson will examine the private worlds behind famed personalities who broke the mold in the 50s and 60s when it came to architecture, art, and design.
Williamson will share her compelling collection of photographs that show the homes now—iconic personalities such as Jerome and Evelyn Ackerman, Charles and Ray Eames, Wharton Esherick and Albert Frey, to name a few.
This look behind the scenes reveals how these leaders employed style, fine art, and traditional craft into their rich private homes, as well as their work and living spaces.
“Handcrafted Modern” is part of the Sidney D. Gamble Lecture Series, sponsored by the Friends of Gamble House.
