Art and Design | This week’s late-breaking art events
There are more than 115 Art & Design events happening this weekend. Check our listings for details. After the jump, check out several great shows—all free—which didn't make it into print:"Not Ready To Make Nice: Guerrilla Girls in the Artworld and Beyond" opened at Columbia College last night. Though the Guerrilla Girls' heyday was in the 1980s and '90s, our national debate about whether women should use contraception and make their own medical decisions makes their work seem pretty freaking relevant. (See the Museum of Contemporary Art's '80s flashback "This Will Have Been" for more déja vu.)
