Jae Carmichael [1925 – 2005] Abstract Painting SOLD P683

Jae Carmichael, painter, sculptor, photographer, writer, and independent filmmaker  updated a 19th century cemetery and was founding director of Pasadena’s Pacific Asia Museum.  She staged more than 200 solo exhibitions in galleries in Los Angeles, Japan, and Europe and has works included in permanent collections of the Oakland Museum of California, the Long Beach Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Her 1976 film Heritage of Hope was nominated for an Emmy, and she initiated the Mountain View Cemetery and Mausoleum’s installation of computer chips called Memory Medallions in a few dozen historic tombstones, allowing visitors with a laptop or hand-held computer to view 5-min silent films about such luminaries as CalTech physicist Richard Feynman and 1950s actor George Reeves.

She died in Pasadena, California on November 5, 2005.
