We want MO civically engaged families, Atlanta!
With a record breaking 6.9 million people in Georgia registered to vote, citizens across our state are headed to the polls to make their voices heard. Take a few moments out of election day and join MODA for some family friendly activities all about the power of voting.
It’s going to be a great afternoon as we explore and learn more about our civic duties:
Design your own campaign poster and determine the platform on which you will run.
Consider what a yes or no vote can look like and use design principles, such as iconography, imagery, words, and color to design your very own.
Hang your wish for the future of Atlanta and for the United States on MODA’s wish tree out on the plaza.
Activities are happening all afternoon. Drop in at a time that’s good for you.
All activities are free with admission to the museum, but we ask that you register in advance to help us plan for the event! This is not a drop-off museum program, and all children must be supervised.
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.
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.
