MODA welcomes ‘Designing Justice’
By DALLAS ANNE DUNCAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Luba Lukova wanted to have a purpose to her paintings.
“[Activism] is the purpose of art, of any genre of art, in a way. Not just to entertain, but to say something meaningful about our time and we know that anything is possible in art,” Lukova said.
This summer, her social justice poster portfolio is on display at the Museum of Design Atlanta.
“We think about design as a tool for making a difference, and so much of her work is about issues that we’re all talking about right now. It’s really timely,” said Laura Flusche, MODA executive director. For an expanded version of this story, visit www.thegavoice.com.
