The second Sunday of every month is Family Free Day at MODA! Join us on Sunday, October 14th as we redesign our communities with LEGOs!

This Family Free Day, we’ll be grabbing build plates and LEGOs to re-design the world around us. In the MODA lobby and throughout the galleries, we’ll have tables and LEGO containers set out to let your creativity run wild, as you imagine your ideal community and place to live.

As we explore the needs in our communities, we’ll take inspiration from our current exhibition, Design for Good: Architecture for Everyone, to see how other designers have addressed various needs around the world.

Our Current Exhibition: Design for Good: Architecture for Everyone

While you're here check out MODA’s exhibition Design for Good: Architecture for Everyone. It offers people-driven, real-world stories about buildings that are designed and created with and for the people who use them. The exhibition will reveal a new understanding of the ways that design shapes our lives. It will give interested citizens the tools to seek out and demand designs that dignify.





 

 

About Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism:

Craftivism is a worldwide movement that operates at the intersection of craft and activism. Across the globe, artists and crafters armed with traditional materials like yarn, glue guns, quilt patterns, sewing needles, X-ACTO knives, and other tools are using their hands to protest social and political inequalities and injustices.

The time spent on these works shows the dedication to creating pieces that evoke emotion and promote discussion. By sharing ideas expressed through the work of their hands, these artists and crafters aim to make you think, explore and take note.

MODA’s Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism exhibition explores this movement. The exhibition also provides opportunities for all visitors to get involved by making something that makes a difference.

 

This exhibition is curated by Betsy Greer, author of Craftivism: The Art and Craft of Activism.
