Responding to an audience underserved by museums, the Georgia Museum of Art has created a new program specifically for teenagers. The first Teen Studio Night will be held May 3 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Teens can join GMOA editor Mary Koon and textile designer Susan Hable as they discuss the exhibition Pattern and Palette in Print: Gentry Magazine and a New Generation of Trendsetters, then participate in a fabric design workshop inspired by the exhibition.
Pattern and Palette in Print is a collaborative exhibition featuring work by students in the fabric design program at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Students took inspiration from the 1950s menswear periodical Gentry and were asked to create a color palette and design their own patterns based on their studies of the magazine and other 1950s-era media. Koon and Hable served as co-curators of the exhibition along with Clay McLaurin, fabric design chair at the art school.
Pizza will be served and space is limited. Call 706-542-4662 to reserve a spot.
