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.
