Annual observance of African-American achievement features “Designs for Life” industrial design exhibit January 12-February 28, 2007
On January 12, 2007, the Museum of Science and Industry opened Designs for Life, an interactive exhibit that explores the creative and technical field of industrial design and the achievements of African-American designers. The exhibit will open as part of the Museum’s annual Black Creativity celebration—a six-week program that highlights the achievements and heritage of African Americans—and guests will be able to explore the history, present and future of industrial design, while learning about the challenges and rewards of this often under-appreciated career.
