Listening to the Eames If LACMA’s exhibit is the “granddaddy” of Pacific Standard Time design shows, the young upstart is a show called Eames Words, celebrating Charles and Ray Eames little-known observations about the often humble things that inspired them. It also opens October 1, at the A+D Museum , on the other side of Wilshire Boulevard. The show is a collaborative effort involving around 40 volunteers, led by Deborah Sussman who worked with the Eames for many years, after being plucked from design school in Chicago. She talks about the influence that the Eames had on her own career as well as American culture. Meanwhile at the Hollywood gallery JF Chen , there's a show of over 400 objects designed by the Eames, including some rare and unique pieces. See the DnA calendar for more details.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
