We're hearing a lot about the all-gold talents of up-and-coming Atlanta musical artists. What about those in the visual arts? Museum of Design Atlanta is giving local emerging and imaginative designers a chance to shine.

The South's Next Wave: Design Challenge pairs object designers with interior designers to create vignettes throughout the museum. Curators David Goodrowe and Tim Hobby propose the innovative exhibition as a chance to extol the virtues of the new Southern aesthetic.

Visitors can choose their favorite portions. The winning designer gets bragging rights and cold, hard cash.
