Last Call for 1848

It may have been a long time ago, but 1848 thrust America into the Faster, Cheaper, Newer, More attitude we're still exploring. Since June, the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum has hosted an exhibition entitled, appropriately, "Faster, Cheaper, Newer, More: Revolutions of 1848," but after January 9, 2005, your chances of experiencing the forward thinking past will be over. The exhibit encompasses objects from all four Cooper-Hewitt curatorial departments (Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design; Product Design and Decorative Arts; Wallcoverings; and Textiles), from the Cooper-Hewitt Design Archives, and from several collecting departments of other Smithsonian branches. It's curated by novelist, design critic and public radio host Kurt Andersen. Find out more at the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum's New & Upcoming Exhibitions.

While you're there, check out the other great exhibits "Josef and Anni Albers: Designs for Living" and "Design is Not Art: Functional Objects from Donald Judd to Rachel Whiteread" both running through February 27th.
