Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and his inspirational legacy. This week’s highlights include a last call to see exhibitions of designs that changed the way we see and hear the world, a members-only bash, and more.
• Today is the last day to take in the design exhibitions Making Music Modern and This Is For Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good. Can’t make it to New York in time? Check out blog posts—here and here—that feature works in these exhibitions.
