Matthew Offenbacher. Study for the Gift Shop.
Not to be missed! Entrance always free for UW students. And the Henry’s website is quite interesting from a usability perspective, created by stellar web developers at IF/THEN.
The Gift Shop Presents: Presents
Claire Cowie, Sol Hashemi, Jason Hirata
Friday, November 20th—December 13
Sol, Jason, and Claire are bringing gifts back to the Gift Shop! They’re stocking the Gift Shop with gifts they have made together and individually, and have asked friends to make. During the three weeks of the exhibition anyone is invited to make a gift, bring it in, and exchange it for one they find. In the spirit of “white elephant” and “secret santa” games, this encourages speculation, anticipation, excitement (or disappointment?)—challenging each of us to confront our desires and expectations.
Anyone who wants to participate can make a gift, place it in the gallery, and choose one to take home. The gift exchange will continue during the Henry’s regular gallery hours, Friday November 20th through Sunday December 13th.

Manual Miranda, Designer for 2×4
Visiting Design Studio Lecture
2×4 is a collaborative group of creative directors, writers, and designers founded in 1994 by partners Michael Rock, Susan Sellers, and Georgianna Stout. With cutting-edge projects in virtually all graphic media-print, web, motion graphics, and environmental design, 2×4′s trademark approach heavily emphasizes critical thinking and research. Known for intellectual content and explorations of rhetorical meaning, many of 2×4′s projects question the nature of design and are as much about the thinking process behind each work as the finished product. This ideology, based on an almost algorithmic approach, is the foundation for 2×4′s pioneering model for design, one that makes process the product.
The work of 2×4 was been featured in exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and he Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2006 2×4 was awarded the National Design Award for Communications. Additionally, 2×4 has been featured in numerous publications including Time Magazine, Eye and Idea Magazine.
