MODA Awarded

After an exciting move to Midtown in 2011, Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) has striven to plant its feet firmly in the Midtown Arts Corridor and offer Atlanta cutting-edge design exhibitions and programs that showcase the power of design to change the world. While these efforts have already gained critical and visitor appreciation, the funding world is now taking notice of MODA’s achievements. MODA has been awarded $150,000 over two years from the Metro Atlanta Arts Fund to be used toward general operating expenses. Receiving an award of this magnitude from an important Atlanta arts organization shows the confidence that MODA is currently able to inspire. In addition to the MAAC award, MODA has also been awarded a $90,000 grant from the Lettie Pate Evans Foundation for capital and technological upgrades that will enhance exhibitions and programs and will make the museum’s elegant, contemporary galleries even more visitor- and exhibition-friendly. Lettie Pate Evans Foundation – an independent private foundation that invests primarily in education, arts and culture – is part of the family of foundations that also includes the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation. And, for the second year in a row, the Zeist Foundation has granted MODA $25,000 to help bring its well-known STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art/design, and math) and Design Thinking programming to underserved youth, as well as $10,000 to help retire old debt, which will further strengthen the museum’s financial footing. Congrats to our MODA friends! Visit today!
