Masters of Mid-Century California Modernism - Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman Opens at the Mingei International Museum.


Aired 4/20/09

Maureen Cavanaugh:  It's the look of the popular TV show Mad Men , or the film Revolutionary Road . The clean, spare, functional look of mid-century design. The home furnishings, architectural touches and accessories of the mid-20th century are enjoying a revival. And the works of one Southern California couple are the subject of a new exhibit at the Mingei International Museum. Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman made a distinctly Californian version of mid-century design. We'll hear about their work and their interesting collaboration from my guests:

Masters of Mid-Century California Modernism - Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman opens at the Mingei Museum this Sunday, March 29th.


  • Jo Laurie is a decorative arts specialist and co-curated the Ackerman exhibit at the Mingei.
