Family Free Day November

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

The second Sunday of every month is Family Free Day at MODA! Join us on Sunday, November 12 for MODA's Type Fest.

Celebrate your love of language and fonts at this Family Free Day's Type Fest. Inspired by Alphabet, an installation by Chase Jarvis featured in MODA's current exhibition, Text Me: How We Live in Language, we're calling on designers, creatives, and lovers of all things text to design your own typeface. Learn design tips and tricks to take your favorite letters to the next level. Before you go, take a photo with your design and have it featured for the day at MODA's Design Bar.

While you're here check out MODA's newest exhibition, Text Me: How We Live in Language, an exhibition that attempts to organize, express, translate, and reflect both how we live in language and how language now defines our lives. This exhibition does contain adult content, and parental discretion is advised. Please check in with MODA's front desk upon arrival for more information, or call 404.979.6455.

Inspired by our past exhibition, Food by Design: Sustaining the FutureMODA is hosting a Thanksgiving-themed food drive. All donations will go to the Atlanta Food Bank.
