NEW YORK
The Whitney opens their acid flashback “Summer of Love: Art of the Psychadelic Era” this weekend. Includes the photography of Richard Avedon (above) and rock art posters commisioned by music promoter Bill Graham. www.whitney.org

The Museum of Arts & Design (aka that building in Columbus Circle that everyone hates and is now getting a facelift) has three shows going on. The Eames Lounge Chair: An Icon of Modern Design celebrates the 50th anniversary of this timeless piece. Nature Transformed features wood art from the Bohlen Collection and Schmuck 2006 includes work by 60 jewelry artists from around the world. www.madmuseum.org 

OUT OF TOWN
We nearly forgot to mention “Chandelirious! The Dazzling World of Contemporary Chandeliers” at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont. If you’ve got a lesbian wedding to attend in New England, be sure to make a sidetrip to this amazing museum of art and design. Check out the Shaker furniture exhibit if you’ve got time. Through October 23, 2007. www.shelburnemuseum.org
