Art Cologne- April 21-25, Cologne: The last edition of the ART COLOGNE proved able to meet the challenges of the new economy by physical consolidation, conceptual expansion and easy access to the cultural riches of the Rhineland. The 44th Internationaler Kunstmarkt will build on this model. Located again in Levels 1 and 2 of Hall 11 of the Koelnmesse grounds in Cologne-Deutz, the 44th ART COLOGNE will showcase 180 modern, post-war and contemporary galleries.

Sustainable Futures- March 31-05 September, London: The Design Museum in London has curated an exhibit that explores a range of products, concepts and projects that address issues of sustainability in their design. Through prototypes, samples, products and film, you can find out more about your impact on the world and how to change it. Presented around five themes: Cities, Energy and Economics, Food, Materiality and Creative Citizens, this overview shows the changing role of the designer and reveals how design can make a difference.

The Art of Exchange: Crafting Community At Ace Hotel & Swim Club- April 23-25, Palm Springs: The Art of Exchange is a two day, two night artist retreat for kids and families with interactive workshops, activities, projects, Saturday movie night with popcorn, and the aforementioned s’mores (which we’re obviously feeling pretty casual about). Artist Karen Kimmel and friends will guide art projects like potato prints, miniature gardens, macramé, dioramas, and knitting, with a focus on the reuse and repurposing of natural materials. You can also just do your own thing, hang out by the pool, and explore. Community activities will include a poolside barbecue, Sunday brunch, and some communal dining with a special menu for families.

GEL (Good Experience Live) 2010- April 29-30, New York:
Short for “Good Experience Live”, Gel is a conference, and community, exploring good experience in all its forms — in business, technology, art, society, and life. Instead of focusing on just one thing (design, technology, user experience, business, etc.) like many conferences, Gel touches on many things. This challenges attendees to find, and learn from, the patterns that underlie good experience, even in disciplines vastly different from their own.
