Reward the most overworked sense with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one adult admission to AD 20/21: Art & Design of the 20th & 21st Centuries and the Boston Print Fair (a $15 value), which takes place April 8–10 at The Cyclorama in Boston. Children under 12 are admitted for free.
The show brings together 50 American exhibitors to showcase the finest works—be they contemporary, traditional, or covered with scotch tape—from their collections. Ogle artful books from Massachusetts' 21st and Legacy Editions before adhering to no-running rules to behold the beautiful glass works of Maryland's La Verrerie d'Art. Viewer can get ideas for redecorating Barbie’s dream house with the fine carpets from Orley & Shabahang and custom furniture from Paul Garbarino. Because admission is good to use for all three days, swing by on Saturday, April 9 for a guest lecture on the roots of American modernism from Design Research: The Store That Brought Modern Living to American Homes co-authors Jane Thompson and Alexandra Lange, then hit up the roundtable discussion of emerging design on Sunday, April 10, featuring panelists such as modern sculptor and furniture designer Jacob Kulin and milliner Marie Galvin.
