Boston is a Creative Capital, a culture center for all creative pursuits: visual and performing arts, media, and, especially, design. But what exactly is design? It is where creativity and industry meet. It is a visual planning process. It shapes our world. It is everywhere. Everything around us has been designed: the buildings we live and work in, the landscapes and spaces we move through, and the things we read, watch, and use.
There are thousands of designers in the City of Boston. This exhibit showcases work from a select sampling of these many design practitioners. Some of the things you see may look familiar. Notice the public park where you eat lunch? The lobby you pass through on your way to work? The kitchen tools you use every day? Great design at your service, created in Boston.
