The South: home to numerous design talents, both emerging and seasoned. The
Museum of Design Atlanta
thinks it's time to prove it.
This fall, the museum will present
The South's Next Wave: Design Challenge
, part exhibition, part competition.
Set/interior designers will be paired with object designers to showcase objects in unique environments. "We envision each vignette as a distinct environment with many layers," says curator Tim Hobby. Each vignette will be technologically enabled in such a way as to allow the viewer to access facts and video about the designers and the collaborative vignette design.
During the run of the exhibition, MODA visitors will be asked to choose their favorite vignette and object. Winners get more than bragging rights - there is a cash prize!
