The Cranbrook Academy of Art's designer in residence, also head of its graduate program in 3-D design, has done extensive product work for clients such as Steelcase and Knoll. For Offi &Company, he dreamed up Spaceframe, a 20-piece children's toy of recyclable PET that Fortune named one of the top 25 products of 2004. It's now appearing in "Crossing Flatland: New Designs by Scott Klinker"at the Cranbrook Art Museum, the academy's sister institution in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. February 4–April 2; 877-462-7262; cranbrookart.edu.
The forecast calls for blizzards in the Windy City this winter, thanks to "The Snowflake Project"by architect Yutaka Sone. Accompanying the 30 pine trees he's erecting in the gallery of the University of Chicago's Renaissance Society are snowflake drawings and photos as well as Marble Snowflake sculptures.

With "Catherine Opie: 2004 Larry Aldrich Award Exhibition,"the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut, focuses on two series by this photographer. The first one, In &Around Home, is an investigation into the American way of life as seen through portraits of her own relatives and shots of her neighborhood. In the second, 1999, Opie documents a road trip that she took across the U.S. at the end of the millennium—stopping to capture such images as the C-print Untitled #29.

Leslie Sacks Fine Art, Los Angeles, is ablaze over "Minjung Kim: Void in Fullness."The watercolorist incorporates fire in her works to express gee, or fundamental energy in Korean. For her mixed-media Void in Fullness, she arranged hundreds of rice-paper rosettes, wet their perimeters, and burned the centers to create rings. She then layered them into a collage.
