Hand-in-Hand: The Designs of Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman Panel Discussion
2pm – Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Influenced by the Bauhaus school, works produced by Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman under the ERA label exemplified the exuberant California perspective in Mid-Century Modern design. For over 50 years their production included ceramics, mosaics, woodcarvings, and textiles, one of which – Garden – is featured in Frank Bros. at Home, the Museum Studies student-curated component of Frank Bros.: The Store That Modernized Modern at the California State University Long Beach University Art Museum. Join us for an afternoon of discussion moderated by CSULB Design Professor Tom Treadway with Jerome Ackerman, Laura Ackerman-Shaw, and writer Dan Chavkin, co-author of Hand-in-Hand: Ceramics, Mosaics, Tapestries, and Woodcarvings by the California Midcentury Designers Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman. The panel will take place on Wednesday afternoon, March 15th at 2:00 pm. in the University Student Union Beach Auditorium. Mr. Ackerman and Mr. Chavkin will be available after the panel to sign copies of Hand-in-Hand. Free to all members of the CSULB community.
