With "Master of None," Aziz Ansari Has Created a True American Original

Smithsonian Magazine
Aziz Ansari | Smithsonian Magazine’s 2016 American Ingenuity Award Winner for Performing Arts The actor, comedian and author is being honored for his starring role as Dev Shah in “Master of None,” the Netflix series that he created with Alan Yang. Like the character he plays, Ansari is the son of Indian immigrant parents, and his smart, surprising take on life, love, technology and cultural identity in the United States has helped make the show “the year’s best comedy straight out of the gate,” as the New York Times put it. Among Ansari’s other accomplishments are his unforgettable portrayal of the loopy Tom Haverford on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” his best-selling book about dating in the internet age, Modern Romance (co-authored with Eric Klinenberg), and his blockbuster stand-up act that sold out Madison Square Garden.

With Empathy and Care: Designing to Improve People’s Lives

Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
How do designers best understand and meet the needs of underserved communities? What practices foster deeper insight and promote new creative thinking? In conjunction with the exhibition By the People: Designing a Better America, Cooper Hewitt and Pratt Institute, with additional support from CaringKind, host a presentation and discussion of these questions and more with National Design Award winner Constantin Boym, Chair of Pratt Institute’s Industrial Design program, graduate students of the program, and prosthetic designer Garrett Hurley. Pratt Institute collaborated with the nonprofit organizations CaringKind, dedicated to Alzheimer’s caregiving, and CHiPS, a soup kitchen and shelter, to develop multi-disciplinary designs to meet the needs of these communities with empathy and care. Hurley is the designer of the Infinite Socket, a breakthrough prosthetic socket design, which was developed in the community-based prototyping and fabrication studio TechShop, now on view in the exhibition. Curator of Socially Responsible Design Cynthia E. Smith moderates the program.

Without These Whistleblowers, We May Never Have Known the Full Extent of the Flint Water Crisis

Smithsonian Magazine
Marc Edwards and Leeanne Walters | Smithsonian Magazine’s 2016 American Ingenuity Award Winners for Social Progress The duo joined forces to protect tens of thousands of people during the disastrous water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Walters, a Flint resident, grew suspicious when her tap water changed color and her family suffered odd maladies. Officials insisted that the problems were limited to her household, but she refused to accept that answer and sought out Edwards, a Virginia Tech civil engineering professor and a veteran of municipal water wars. Combining political action and scientific credibility, the testing initiative undertaken by Walters and Edwards showed that the city’s water supply was contaminated with toxic chemicals—an explosive finding that finally forced state and local officials to address the dangers.
