Art & Design 2012: Home tour to showcase best in interior design and local talent

The house is lined up, the reveal is planned, and the decorators are inspired. It’s time to mark your calendar for the second annual Art & Design Show House presented by Marietta Cobb Museum of Art opening Sept. 15 through 29.

“We have a great team pulled together to work on (the Show House). We think that Marietta has so much talent as far as artists and interior designers that we wanted to bring a show house/art gallery here to show the community what these creative geniuses have to offer,” said Sally Macaulay, MCMA executive director.

“The Show House is a good way to bring in all the things that we are, creatively in terms of visual arts and design,” said Cathy Brazeal, owner of Brazeal Consulting. She chairs the event with Cassandra Buckalew, owner of the historic Marietta Trolley Company. Read more about this event by clicking here.

Modern Class Design and the Museum of Design Atlanta Fundraising Event

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Modern Class Design (MCD), the interior design company founded by NFL star Vernon Davis and business partner Antone Davis, has partnered with the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) to host a fundraising event featuring art, fashion and design.

Set to be held Saturday, June 9 at MODA, proceeds from the event will help fund the attendance of inner-city students at the art focused Camp MODA in 2012. A handful of designers from local colleges have been invited to attend and display their work for the opportunity to be selected and offered an internship MCD.

MODA regularly features exhibitions on architecture, industrial and product design, interiors and furniture, graphics, and fashion. Camp MODA provides students who have an interest in art with the ability to examine the impact of design on their daily lives.

Davis, who plays for the San Francisco 49er’s, believes inner city students growing up in tough neighborhoods like the one where he was raised in Washington, D.C., will build self-esteem through this program which encourages critical and creative thinking. For more details click here.
