    Austin Design Week

    Design? You know: Interior, exterior. The place, perhaps even abstractly, where the utilitarian and/or promotional is infused with beauty, with whatever it takes to please or thrill the eye and mind. Functional art, in other words: More often redolent of technical skill than what's created when some schmuck with too much free time spews their feelings onto a canvas or whatever. Design, you savvy? The sort of visual and physical arrangements that Philippe Starck and Paula Scher and Zaha Hadid and Norman Bel Geddes and Jennymarie Jemison and Karim Rashid, say, have brought the world? Yes, and here's an entire week full of opportunities to explore the best of design in the ATX. [Note: The explorations include Pentagram, so you know it's legit.] See website for details.
    Through Nov. 10

    Austin Polish Film Festival: Poster Exhibition

    Sure, you might want to catch a few of the films being screened at this 12th annual festival – and we'll let Old Man Kupecki and his crew tell you about those. But there's an exhibition of film posters in the AFS Cinema lobby, too, right now – and it costs nothing to walk in and gawk a little, at what's an inspirational array of promotional design and illustration.
