DESIGN IS… is Goldstein Museum of Design’s 7th Annual Benefit, celebrating the design museum’s 40th anniversary.

Live jazz, passed appetizers and buffet, cash bar, and a special preview of the fall exhibition Seeing 40/40.

This fundraiser is a key opportunity to connect with other design aficionados, to support the Goldstein Museum of Design’s work as a design research resource within the University of Minnesota, and to further the museum’s ongoing mission of using the power of design to foster improved quality of life for individuals and communities.

Selected from the Goldstein Museum of Design’s vast collection of 34,000 items, the 40 items in Seeing 40/40 will represent key moments in design. Thought leaders from the design community and beyond will provide commentary for individual objects, lending unique perspectives on how design impacts our lives and our world. A commemorative print catalog will be available in conjunction with the exhibition.
