Drink in Design: Jayna Zweiman

Grab a beverage, any beverage, and get comfortable because MODA is bringing design to you!

Join us online for a virtual Drink in Design. Atlanta’s most creative people (and some from beyond the 404) will invite you into their home, studio, or maker space. They’ll tell you about their work, their career trajectory, and what they’re thinking about now as our world takes a new form.

Drink in Design will be held on Zoom, so you’ll be able to interact and engage with each designer personally. Just register and the meeting link will be delivered straight to your inbox.

On June 4, we’ll be talking to Jayna Zweiman, co-creator/co-founder of The Pussyhat Project, an international network and movement of women’s rights supporters; creator and founder of Welcome Blanket, a reconceptualization of the 2000-mile length of the proposed border wall as 2000-mile length of yarn to make individual welcome blankets for new immigrants coming to the United States; and founder of Masks for Humanity, a hub for essential workers and vulnerable groups that need cloth face masks and people who can make cloth masks.

About Jayna Zweiman:
Jayna Zweiman is a multidisciplinary artist and designer. Her independent practice combines architecture, art, craft and new media to focus on experiences that overlap physical, virtual and conceptual spaces.

Perhaps best known as the co-creator/co-founder of The Pussyhat Project, an international network and movement of women’s rights supporters, Zweiman has become a leading advocate of using design innovation to enact social change. The Pussyhat Project became a worldwide phenomenon at the 2017 Women’s Marches with one of the largest crowd-sourced art advocacy projects ever. She is also the creator and founder of Welcome Blanket, a reconceptualization of the 2000-mile length of the proposed border wall as 2000-mile length of yarn to make individual welcome blankets for new immigrants coming to the United States. This spring Zweiman started Masks for Humanity, a hub for essential workers and vulnerable groups that need cloth face masks and people who can make cloth masks.

Zweiman’s work has been exhibited and published internationally. In 2017, her work has been nominated for the Beazley Design of the Year by the Design Museum in London, acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum, and awarded the first ever Brand of the Year by the School of Visual Arts. Zweiman was awarded in 2017 as one of “The 25 People Who Defined Visual Culture” by Artsy.

Zweiman received her AB from Brown University in visual arts and economics and her Masters in Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
