Cover: Tufted Blue

I'm totally in love with the new exhibit at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA). With that, here's a pre-sized Facebook Cover Photo from one of the 17 vignettes at MODA's "The South's Next Wave: Design Challenge"...Vignette #6: "Darkly, Deeply, Beautiful Blue".

"Darkly, Deeply, Beautiful Blue" was created by cg creative interiors' Caryn Grossman & Chris Buxbaum and the cakes are by Lisa Humphreys of Couture Cakes. This vignette, which subtly features cakes, is a nod to a Parisian salon, with a clever inclusion of Marie Antoinette.

There's a LOT going on in this vignette...including photos and a video of performance artist "Baby Doll" who attended opening night. It's nearly like observing a Salvador Dali painting in its infinite could explore for hours!

Shared in a tour by exhibition curators Tim Hobby and David Goodrowe, of Goodrowe | Hobby, the artists of this vignette started as soon as the set-up period began and worked through the meager one-week time frame to prepare for the exhibition opening.

The exhibition is indeed a "challenge"...visitors get to vote on their favorite vignette. I like so many of them, I've not yet cast my vote. I need more time to deliberate. But...don't wait too long. The winner will be announced well before the exhibition concludes, so visitors have time to check out the winner(s).

Check out my previous post of this exhibit and then add a visit to MODA to your calendar. There's no other museum like this in Atlanta and it's one of the very few in the area that's also a Smithsonian Affiliate museum.

Now, head over to the wanderlust ATLANTA Facebook Page for more of what's going on in Atlanta!
