Creative Capital: Designed in Boston

Design Museum Boston explores the influence and importance of design in everyday life, with a special focus on the Boston area. Bringing their exhibits to galleries, retail environments, public spaces and the web, the Design Museum Boston provides an innovative alternative to the traditional brick and mortar museum. 

Tonight is the opening reception for the museum's latest exhibit Creative Capital at Boston City Hall!
A little bit about the exhibit from their website:
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.
