Highlights from the Collection: Design Into Art - Ongoing; All day - Long before it was widely accepted to do so, Noguchi ignored the traditional distinction between “art” and “design.” This exhibition focuses on the permeable membrane between these categories in Noguchi’s work, with lightweight and flat-packable furniture, stage sets, sculpture, and Akari Light Sculptures.| Noguchi Museum, 9-01 33rd Road (at Vernon Boulevard), Long Island City

Bearing Witness - Ongoing ; All day - Drawings by William Gropper. Growing up in poverty on the Lower East Side, Gropper learned early about social injustice. He dropped out of school to work in the sweatshops but found respite in drawing and studied with Robert Henri and George Bellows. Gropper’s aunt was a victim of 1911’s Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, which further radicalized his thinking. Along with his study of artists who came before him, it was the graphic works of Goya and Daumier that helped solidify his direction as an artist. | Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows Corona Park
