Film: Design for Modern Living – Millard Sheets and the Claremont Art Community, 1935-1975

February 24, 2017 | 9:00 am - 10:00 am |


In the years following World War II, the community of Claremont in Southern California emerged as an important center for the visual arts, due largely to the inspired efforts of the artist and educator Millard Sheets. In Claremont, painters, sculptors, ceramists, enamel and mosaic artists, woodworkers and fiber artists devoted themselves to their creative pursuits with great imagination and energy, creating works that express the spirit of Postwar Modernism in California. Design for Modern Living tells the story of this remarkable artistic community and the men and women who made Claremont an important center of Mid-20th Century Modern design.

This film is an excellent lead-in to the following presentation by Adam Arenson on Millard Sheets, the panel discussion that follows the Millard Sheets presentation and the new documentary at 1PM on the art and architecture of Claremont.

Produced by Paul Bockhorst Productions in cooperation with the Claremont Museum of Art. 60 minutes. To see a trailer of this film, please visit https://youtu.be/wggRkuvaez8.
