Reminder: NYC Makers at MAD

By  | 

NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial, an exhibition that spotlights the creative communities thriving across New York’s boroughs today opens on July 1 (to October 12) at the Museum of Arts and Design. It’s the first exhibition to be organized under the leadership of MAD’s new director Glenn Adamson (see MODERN, Spring 2014, pp. 132-137) and will showcase the work of approximately one hundred highly inventive artisans, artists, and designers who create objects or environments through exquisite workmanship and skill. Exemplifying the museum’s ongoing commitment to craftsmanship across all creative fields, the exhibition will serve as a platform not only for makers who typically display their work in a museum setting, but also those who operate behind the scenes. madmuseum.org
