Seasonal Special Happenings

By Design

When: Thu., Jan. 23, 8 p.m. 2014

The subject of the new documentary Design is One: Lella & Massimo Vignelli examines the enormous influence of Italian designers Lella and Massimo Vignelli. The duo is famous for having designed all the New York subway signs, something they talk about extensively in the film ("People complained about the map," says Massimo in the film as he unfolds a subway map and explains what he and his wife intended to accomplish with the map, which is really a work of art). The film screens tonight at 8 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Jeff Niesel)
