MODA Digital Arts Studio

In the Gantt’s pursuit of digital transformation, we're proud to open MODA (Mecca of Digital Arts), a state-of-the-art studio and innovation lab designed to facilitate digital art by providing cutting-edge equipment, software, instruction, and mentorship. By creating an accessible space for exploration, personalized education, and meaningful discussions with peers and mentors, MODA fosters a community built on shared accountability, visibility, and collaborative success.

With MODA, the Gantt Center's goal is to make the digital arts accessible, inclusive and meaningful through diverse approaches to creative and technological innovation in photography, videography, audio production, design, animation, coding, virtual reality and more.

With generous funding from organizations and individuals including Knight Foundation, D. Oscar and Heidi Groomes, Bertram Scott, J. Porter and Victoria Durham, Jr., and Rodgers Builders, MODA expands the Gantt's multidisciplinary arts offerings.
