Eye for Design | Opens on June 7, recommended by Amelia Taylor-Hochberg
For graphic design nerds, this is a wonderful opportunity to take a deep dive into a particular moment in design and advertising. The graphical identity for the Museum of Arts and Design channeled the counterculture and experimental zeitgeist of the 1960s and 70s into new techniques of making and designing, and now takes a look back at that formative time. The exhibition includes work by Emil Antonucci, John J. Reiss, and Linda Hinrich, among others.
Part I: Manifesto Series: In Our Time - The Sharing Movement | June 8, recommended by Nicholas Korody
The first in a two-part series presented by the Met Breuer and the Storefront for Art and Architecture, "In Our Time - the Sharing Movement" will comprise a discussion on a very trending topic, #sharing. "How will today's sharing movement affect the way we work, move, build, and produce new ideas and knowledge?" the organizers ask. It's a timely question — and with Eva Franch i Gilabert as moderator and Beatrice Galilee as host, probably well-worth the trip up to the former-Whitney-current-Met Breuer.

Spend Saturday morning at Hunter's Point South Park for the official unveiling of Meridian (Gold) by artist Mika Tajima. The temporary art installation — which was selected by high school students from SculptureCenter's Public Process intensive program — will feature an illuminated plume of water vapor whose color shifts between magenta and pale cyan to show in real-time the global sentiment for gold. The (free!) Community Opening Day will feature an artist talk with Tajima and a conversation with Public Process students.

Surround yourself with other typography enthusiasts and professionals. The 11-day festival will include workshops and tours starting on June 13. But don't miss out on the main event at The Cooper Union: the Typographics Conference on June 17-18, which will focus on the different uses of type for publications, advertising, corporate identity, and user interfaces. Also be on the lookout for more programming details, like the new typographic book fair and the return of TypeLab. Registration is open now.
