Last week, Melissa Fitzmaurice and her students explored the work of Charles and Ray Eames. Campers and counselors drew inspiration from the designs of these modern builders to create their own whimsical array of colorful houses, warped furniture, solar-powered do-nothing machines, and elephants.
Students then broke into groups to study and pay homage to the many films made by the Eameses and their descendants. These showcase the Eames’ best-known inventions, and the Museum’s most beloved. Please enjoy the finished product:
