The Museum of Design Atlanta will commemorate World AIDS Day with continuous programs from midnight Wednesday, November 30, to midnight Thursday, December 1. Events will include poetry readings, a quilting workshop, a dance party in the wee hours and opera, dance and orchestral performances. For the complete list, visit MODA’s website.
Docents will conduct tours of MODA’s exhibitions at 9 a.m. Selected panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt, which was and continues to be created by friends and families to honor loved ones lost to AIDS, are on view, along with “Graphic Intervention: 25 Years of International AIDS Posters.” “The Opulent Object in Wood, Metal and Fiber” features exquisitely crafted objects by Atlantans Jon Eric Riis and Richard Mafong.
