Have a drink, become a member of DesigningAMuseum.org, and live tweet at our onsite kiosks. View an onsite exhibit of the Design Museum Boston mission featuring local design work. Join the conversation as we work together to educate the public about the work local designers are doing and celebrate its broad impact. We’ll see you there!

About Design Museum Boston
Design Museum Boston is a non-profit organization with the goal of creating and maintaining a network of virtual and physical exhibit spaces online, in Boston, and across New England. These exhibits will educate the public on the role of design in their lives and the contributions of design within the creative economy. Design Museum Boston will also host events and programs related to design education to further connect the design community to the public.
Design Museum Boston showcases exciting design work and it’s impact differently than a traditional museum. Through a decentralized network of physical and virtual exhibits, Design Museum Boston brings programming to galleries, retail environments, public spaces and the web. There, audiences can be exposed to the design process from a social, economic, and environmental point of view.

Browsing the Net looking for a present for my wife for our wedding anniversary (which I nearly forgot), I came by chance upon this fantastic site called wahooart.com, based probably in Paris. Talk about the Louvre having a big collection of priceless masterpieces, this site has just about everything in Western art, but as digital files.
What they do is to make good reproduction prints from your choice of work from their archive. I know that the prints are good because I ordered online, a print that was on canvas, like a painting. I specified the size and even chose a frame at their site.
A bit awkward when the gift was delivered early to my door, luckily while my wife was not home. What did I choose? This glorious nude by the German artist George Grosz: http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHV5V and it's hanging gloriously large above our bed head now. Risqué? Sure. But my wife and I love it.
