The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur Gallery Debuts

Milk Aliens Campaign by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners
Gold winner of the Hybrid Multi-Channel category

The 86th Annual Art Directors Club (ADC) Awards Exhibition will be the debut exhibit at the Gallery at The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur on January 15. The exhibit will be on view through February 12. A reception will be held from 5 to 7 pm on Friday, February 8, as part of the quarterly Decatur ArtWalk. The reception and exhibit are open to the public at no charge.

Each year the Art Directors Club sends its International Annual Awards Exhibition on a worldwide tour. From New York to Sao Paolo, London to Beijing – and Atlanta, the exhibition of gold, silver, and distinctive merit winners are viewed by thousands.

This fascinating annual exhibit shows the work of gold and silver medalists in the oldest and largest international awards competition in the United States. Initiated in 1920, The Art Directors Club Annual Awards Exhibition celebrates the best work in advertising, interactive media, graphic design, illustration, and photography. This year, the top Gold Cube medalist in advertising was TBWAChiatDay for Skittles candy, and the Gold Cube medalist in Interactive Media is R/GA for the Nike + campaign. Five finalists in the Hybrid category were honored for the year’s most innovative, ground-breaking work. The newest category was the Corbis Creativity for Social Justice Award, presented to the top-scoring professional entry produced on a pro bono basis. The award went to The Walker Agency of Zurich, Switzerland, for its pro bono work on Amnesty International, and to a Pratt Institute student in New York for her project for Trees New York, a New York City-based not-for-profit environmental group.

The exhibit will be in The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur Gallery, One West Court Square, Suite 110, Decatur, GA 30030. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday, 9 am – 7 pm; Friday from 9 am to 5 pm (except on February 8), and Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm. For information or directions, call 404-942-1800 or online at

The ADC is the premier organization for integrated media and the first international creative collective of its kind. Founded in New York in 1920, the ADC is a self-funding, not-for-profit membership organization that celebrates and inspires creative excellence, connecting creative visual communications professionals from around the world.

The Art Institute of Atlanta is one of The Art Institutes (, a system of over 40 educational institutions throughout North America, providing an important source of design, media arts, fashion, and culinary arts professionals. The Art Institute of Atlanta has one satellite location, The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur, and three branch campuses: The Art Institute of Charleston (SC), The Art Institute of Tennessee-Nashville, and The Art Institute of Washington (Arlington, VA).
