Visual art: Made in GA

Fri., June 13



Design-savvy locals know Museum of Design Atlanta best for bringing the world's design to Atlanta. Continuing Fri., JUNE 13, MODA stays on the home front with its current exhibition, MADE IN GA, a look at contemporary industrial design emerging from the Peach State. If this sounds like an out-of-nowhere idea, consider that the world's most recognizable consumer packaging in history came from Atlanta: the Coca-Cola contour bottle. Sketches, prototypes and finished products from a variety of industries will give visitors an overview of the industrial design life cycle, from concept to product. MODA will showcase student work from Georgia Tech and SCAD alongside blue-chip giants such as Newell Rubbermaid, Sunbeam and Bridgestone. Through Oct. 18. Free. Tues.-Sat., 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Marquis II Tower, 285 Peachtree Center Ave. 404-979-6455.
