‘Graphic Design—Now in Production,’ Governors Island, N.Y., May 26 through Sept. 3
This show, a co-venture of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, is about the far reaches of graphic design over the past 12 years. Themes include typography, information design and books—the furry McSweeney’s “The Wild Things” by Dave Eggers, pictured here, is an example (based loosely upon the Maurice Sendak book). The “Branding” section of the show includes a Google Doodle in which the Google logo is composed entirely of birds and branches, celebrating Audubon’s birthday. The show is free and open to the public on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays.
