Design time

Boston creatives strut their stuff at the sixth annual Boston Design Week, a 12-day festival that embraces graphic design, fashion, architecture, historic preservation, interior design, and more. Events, held in venues in Boston and beyond, include a panel of social-media influencers, a color-trend forecast, a presentation by Bauhaus scholars, a “Shark Tank”-style student showdown, home renovation Q&As, and a conversation with a renowned public artist. The extravaganza runs March 27-April 7. Programs, events, and exhibitions are free and open to the public; RSVPs are recommended. Visit for more information.
