March 8 marks the closing of this months-long exhibit at the PMA, so for those of you that have been meaning to go - now's your time! Journey through an electrifying landscape of designs that respond to the future in surprising, ingenious, and occasionally unsettling ways. From daring flights of imagination to products already on the market, the works on view explore what lies ahead for the earth and its inhabitants—through the interplay of design, art, science, and technology. Want to talk about what you saw or just read and relax? Drop by the Futures Therapy Lab at the end of the exhibition. Sundays and Wednesday nights are "pay what you wish" at the Musuem, so if you play your cards right - you still have a chance to save on that $25 admission fee before it ends. Designs for Different Futures is organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Walker Art Center, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
