DISCOVERING DESIGN

Students from Cane Ridge High School and Nashville School of the Arts created works inspired by country couture designer Manuel. Students toured the museum to view a selection of Manuel’s signature costumes. They heard him tell his personal story and they learned about his creative process during question-and-answer. Among the wisdom he shared, Manuel told the students that he gives his clients what they do not know they need. Students took this advice back to their classrooms to create inspired costume designs.

ICONS AS INSPIRATION

Students from Hillwood High School and Nashville School of the Arts created the following works inspired by Chicago-based artist and musician Jon Langford. Students came to the museum to view Langford’s work and visit with Langford himself. They gained insight from his personal story and learned about his inspirations and his artistic process. Students returned to the classroom with Langford’s work in mind, to create the pieces presented in this gallery. Each piece is accompanied by the student’s artist statement describing the work.
