“It’s far too ugly for me to die here!“ (-noted industrial designer Michael Graves when asked about hospitals). The ugliness that prompted Graves’ outburst included the devices he came across because of his new disability. Wheelchairs, walkers, prosthetics, crutches and other assistive technology devices are part of our lives. But in the grand scheme of design innovations, they’ve been left in the dust. There are hundreds of thousands of designs for glasses, chairs, and tech of every other kind. This exhibition provides an opportunity for artists to design, build and exhibit these new innovations.

West Gallery Hours:
Mon-Sat 12-4 p.m., Thursdays 12-8 p.m.
