Two Women by Mary Hamilton Causse (Photo Courtesy of The Autry)The Autry Museum in Griffith Park is now showing "California's Designing Women," an exhibition highlighting the work of female designers' in the decorative arts from 1896 through 1986. The show features designs from the Arts and Crafts movement to Art Deco to Mid Century Modern and beyond. The broad mix of work displays influences from California’s rich array of cultures, among them Indigenous American, Chinese, Japanese, and Mexican.

As a result, the show features a wide range of mediums, such as textiles, ceramics, furniture, lighting, tapestries, jewelry, clothing, and graphics, the majority of which are being exhibited for the first time.
