mOb studiO is an interdisciplinary, experimental lab consisting of three departments within VCUarts: graphic design, fashion design, and interior design. In partnership with Richmond’s nonprofit Storefront for Community Design, the studiO explores design’s potential to shape a healthier city and encourage citizens to participate more fully in their environment, their government, and their culture.
First Fridays is a signature event in the city’s Arts District. The long-standing monthly art walk happens year-round on the first Friday of every month where galleries, restaurants, nonprofits, and more open their doors in celebration of art and community.
Besides my graduate teaching assistantship at mOb and active participation in mOb+Storefront First Fridays, I get to create posters announcing date and time and a sneak peek of the event’s activities. Due to COVID, Frist Fridays was on pause for the rest of the year, but I kept the posters going to lift people’s spirits.
