A little MAKE news – MAKE was selected for inclusion in the 2006 National Design Triennial, congrats MAKE team! – “The “National Design Triennial” is an ongoing exhibition series at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Inaugurated in 2000, the “Triennial” seeks out and presents the most innovative American designs from the prior three years in a variety of fields, including product design, architecture, furniture, film, graphics, new technologies, animation, science, medicine and fashion. On view throughout the museum campus will be the work of 87 designers and firms, ranging from established design leaders such as Apple Computer, Inc., architect Santiago Calatrava and Nike, Inc. to emerging designers like Joshua Davis, Jason Miller and David Wiseman. “National Design Triennial: Design Life Now,” made possible by Target, will be on view from Dec. 8 through July 29, 2007.”Link.

    Not only is the DIY movement truely energizing to be part of, but its actually being recognized as a–gasp–movement (most artists have to wait till their dead, right?)

    Bravo to Cooper-Hewitt. As an ex-museum professional, I know the difficulties a museum can face when trying to incorporate the proletariat with the accepted establishment. Now I can prove to the doubtful (you know who you are) that we are a creative culture and not just a handful of geeks. :)
