A documentary about the famous couple who had great impact on the design world. Together, Charles and Ray Eames experimented with architecture, art, film, designed objects, and most famously, furniture design. This documentary also focuses on their incredible love story and includes many of the letters they wrote to each other. Below is the link to see if it’s playing in your city! I know I’ll be there.

Having been a fan of Yo-Yo Ma’s beautiful music for a long time, I was thrilled and a bit intrigued to hear that he was releasing a Blue Grass album! Their first album is called Goat Rodeo Sessions. Above is a video of one of Goat Rodeo Session’s new songs. So far, I’m loving it! Anyone who is a fan of Alison Krauss and Union Station (or Blue Grass music in general) will really enjoy this.
I wanted to give a shout out to the recent release of Phonebook 3, a wonderful guide that helps connect artists and administrators. Below is more information from their KickStarter page…
“PHONEBOOK 3 is a directory of independent art spaces, programming, and projects throughout the United States and a collection of critical essays and practical information written by the people who run them. Previous issues of PHONEBOOK published in 2008 and 2009 focused mainly on alternative spaces. PHONEBOOK 3 will expand to include public programming, unconventional residencies, alternative schools, and community resources; all of the projects that form and support art ecologies across the nation, as well as historical documents marking their past.”

Fire Island House
While completing many civic and commercial buildings during his career, architect Arthur Erickson’s residential projects are some of his most famous. Influenced greatly by Native American dwellings, these beautiful wood framed homes are timeless examples of Pacific Northwest modernism.
