Much like our Regular Readers cannot wait for our sends, every cool design kid in Twincy opens up their email on their retro flip phones to read the AIGA newsletter that’s a go-to for anyone interested in creative visuals. What a great fit for a Mia Third Thursday, where you can see the new exhibition Art from Chicago full of ’60s-’80s American art, make own font with type(!) designers Chank Diesel and Anne Ulku, hear tunes from P.PL, have some drinks and more. Maybe even more than previous TT installments, you’re going to want to put some effort into your outfit for this party. Thursday, August 16th, 6 PM. Free.Jillian Finkelson
