Eyedrum has partnered with the American Institute of Architects Atlanta to jury and present this event.
URBANfronts encourages design conversations in a public forum utilizing empty retail space to display stimulating art and design for an otherwise abandoned or empty space. It provides an expression of AIA ATL's commitment to public education and awareness by offering an exhibition platform to display the works of local designers. URBANfronts is focused on producing collaboration and creative partnerships with other Art & Design groups and fostering youthful talent through design students and enthusiasts both exhibiting and attending the event.
Examples of possible Design Interventions: Works in Art, Architecture, Dance, Fashion, Furniture, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Music and Design Presentations/ Discussions.
Each selected Storefront and Installation designer will be featured on the URBANfronts website and exhibition booklet, and will have the prestige of their work being featured as part of the premier AIA URBANfronts exhibit.
