A Legacy of Invention


Charles Eames and Ray Eames gave shape to America's twentieth century. They embraced the era's visionary concept of modern design as an agent of social change, elevating it to a national agenda. Their evolution from furniture designers to cultural ambassadors demonstrated their boundless talents and the overlap of their interests with those of their country.
This Library of Congress exhibit brings together the sources of the Eameses' inspiration, the personal documents of their lives, and the finished products of their talent.
