The Mutiny is growing!

Join SEGD Atlanta for a tour and social at Mutiny Artwrx!

Mutiny Artwrx is much more than a “collective” or an art gallery, or a retail store. While artists do have access to an enormous 75,000 sq. ft. studio complex with a truly collaborative environment with shared assets, and mentoring, and education… All the things truly dedicated collectives share in common.... THERE IS MUCH MORE TO CONSIDER

What sets Mutiny Artwrx apart is that the artist or tradesman has access to multiple streams of revenue. Not only do we have have a large Retail Store and Showroom/Gallery on the Beltline here in Atlanta, We also work with restaurants, hoteliers, major film and production studios as well as designers and purchasing agents, and many other industries. Because we offer access to such a variety of talent, we are able to leverage the group as a whole so that everyone benefits on all sides of the transaction. In addition, we have corporate sponsors that offer special discounts to our members, from artists supplies to equipment, as well as marketing partners, and an ongoing You Tube episodic series continually documenting our growth as individuals and as a group and family.

And… the family is growing!

Meet Mutiny Artwrx founder, JP McChesney and hear the journey of creating Atlanta’s largest for profit art collective! Tour the studio, meet the artists in residence and see their work in progress. Enjoy drinks and snacks compliments of our generous sponsors:  Vellum and APCO!  THANK YOU!

The Locksymths will be there to add music to the evening!

NanoLumens AIA Continuing Education Course: Large Format Indoor Display Technologies

Learning Objectives

I. Participants will understand the purpose and goals associated with the addition of large-format indoor display technology to a space.Our instructor will walk through the ROI of adding large format indoor display technology to a space, discussing how and why adding a display increases the revenue generated by a given space and the interest in such a space (i.e. adding ad revenue and marketing options for shows in a convention center could cause a large tradeshow to select that center over others) II. Participants will be able to identify and understand various technologies used for indoor display technology applications.Our instructor will discuss the various technologies available for large-format indoor displays, walking through how each works and how they are applied to a space, as well as how they are distinguished from one another. III. Participants will be able to identify the best-suited technology for an indoor display application in hypothetical and real-world scenarios.After the various technologies are understood, our instructor will walk participants through various scenarios of applications to discuss how each technology behaves in situ. Situational factors, such as the presence of ambient light, heat and noise restrictions, and limited spacing will be explored. IV. Participants will understand the pros and cons of applicable technologies for indoor display applications.The instructor will identify the perks and drawbacks associated with each technology and where there might be pitfalls or needs in application scenarios that could eliminate or enhance the viability of a given technology. OVERALL GOAL: By the end of our course, participants will be able to look at a potential architecture project, identify how signage could enhance the situation, and to understand which available technology would be best suited to the project due to budget, environment, and energy constrictions.
