Charles and Ray Eames Legacy Celebrated in Gorgeous New Art Show

Midcentury modern design by Charles and Ray Eases are the subject of a fabulous new exhibit at the Nucleus art gallery in Los Angeles. To celebrate the Eames' far-ranging influence on everything from architecture and furniture to graphic design and film, the gallery commissioned more than 20 artists to develop work inspired by the pair. As you can see in the sample of exhibited pieces below, Nucleus chose artists whose styles tap into the Eames ethos of clean lines, bold colors, functionality, and simplicity. They include modernist dollhouse master Judson Beaumont and printmaker Chris Turnham, whose silkscreens of L.A.'s modernist icons were featured in another Nucleus show last spring. Take a closer look.
