The Museum of Arts and Design (“MAD”) explores the blur zone between art, design, and craft today. Accredited by the American Association of Museums since 1991, MAD focuses on contemporary creativity and the ways in which artists and designers from around the world transform materials through processes ranging from the artisanal to the digital.
Tips from foursquare
The best spot to discover your new favorite hobby gives you an up-close view of its artisans-in-residence during its daily open studio. Interactive workshops offer hands-on training from the experts.
Be warned: Backpacks, umbrellas, large bags, and large strollers must be left at the coat check. Only umbrella-style strollers are allowed on the gallery floors.Powered by ParentsConnect.com
Pay-What-You-Wish on Thursdays from 6 to 9 PM!
MAD has some interesting exhibits (we dig the contemporary jewelry gallery & gorgeous collection of quilts), and the Open Studio (w special demonstations by featured artists) is a pretty nifty idea.
