Charles and Ray Eames were two of the most celebrated and prolific designers of the 20th Century.

The first-ever exhibit focused on the life and work of Sacramento native daughter Ray Eames, who fashioned some of the most iconic designs of the 20th Century with her husband Charles, ends tomorrow, Sunday, Feb. 23, after a year-long run at The California Museum. 

Created in partnership with the Eames Office, "Ray Eames: A Century of Modern Design" was conceived to celebrate the centennial of Ray's birth, and kicked off with an opening night party with members of the Eames family. In addition to the mid-century modern furniture that she designed with Charles, the show also includes Ray's paintings, photography and other artwork, including the intricate paper dolls that she created as a girl growing up in Sacramento.
