Design Conversation:  

Quilt Stories by the Savannah College of Art and Design

 

MODA is pleased to announce that on the evening of Tuesday, October 25, SCAD-Atlanta faculty and students will be featured in our monthly Design Conversation.  They will be talking about their Quilt Stories project, which narrates the lives of individuals memorialized in the AIDS Memorial Quilt — select panels of which are now on display at MODA. 

 

Founded in 1987, The Quilt is a poignant memorial, a powerful tool for use in preventing new HIV infections, and the largest ongoing community arts project in the world.  Each section of The AIDS Memorial Quilt measures approximately twelve feet square, and a typical block consists of eight individual three foot by six foot panels sewn together.  Virtually every one of the more than 40,000 colorful panels that make up the Quilt pays tribute to the life of a person lost to AIDS.

 

Quilt Stories in an ongoing project that showcases the stories behind those panels. With the cooperation and assistance of the NAMES Project (the custodian of the AIDS Memorial Quilt), select graduate and undergraduate students in SCAD-Atlanta’s writing program research, write, and produce these compelling audio stories which are distributed by means of an app for the Apple iPhone, iTouch, and iPad.

 

Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and military, and $5 for students and children over 5. Members are free and drinks are complimentary.

 

 

MODA is located at 1315 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30309.
