Movie Night - Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production
6:15 PM - 7:45 PM
Up until just over 30 years ago, when the desktop computer debuted, the whole design production process would have been done primarily by hand, and with the aide of analog machines. The design and print industries used a variety of ways to get type and image onto film, plates, and finally to the printed page. Graphic Means: A History of Graphic Design Production is a journey through this transformative Mad Men-era of pre-digital design production to the advent of the desktop computer. It explores the methods, tools, and evolving social roles that gave rise to the graphic design industry as we know it today.

RSVP here.

Included with Free Admission (First Thursdays) | Free for Members

Barbie Gets with the Program

While it may seem radical to imagine Barbie computing in the ’70s, the computer science field was actually far more gender balanced four decades ago than it is today. Experience the history of gender and computing through the lens of computer playsets from the 1970’s to today. Each is paired with the operable machines that inspired them.

Open April 1, 2017- September 3rd, 2017
