Museum of Arts and Design, New York City



Saturday, September 27, Sunday, September 28, 2008
Free Admission to the Public


The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) opens its new building at 2 Columbus Circle, inaugurating its space with four major exhibitions: Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary; Elegant Armor: The Art of Jewelry; Permanently MAD: Revealing the Collection and Forward Thinking: Building the MAD Collection. The public opening is Saturday, September 27 and Sunday, September 28, 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Admission is free. For information, contact 212.299.7777 or log on to

For the Museum's opening, artist Jason Hackenwerth has created large wearable sculptures, known as Megamites, that will be featured in front of the Museum throughout the day. Created from latex balloons with a sophisticated construction technique, the artist and other performers wearing these sculptures will showcase the works with animated demonstrative performances.

The opening of the new Museum of Arts and Design, designed by Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works, marks the completion of a renewed Columbus Circle, reintegrating the building into the life of the city. The 54,000-square-foot building offers triple the space of MAD's previous facility, allowing the Museum to dedicate galleries to its growing permanent collection for the first time and to host an expanded program of exhibitions that will examine the craftsmanship, materials and processes of contemporary artists and designers from around the world.
  • In its new special exhibition galleries on the fourth and fifth floors, MAD presents Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary, a special thematic exhibition showcasing 51 artists from around the world who re-purpose and transform mass-produced objects into extraordinary works of art.
  • On view in The Tiffany & Co. Foundation Jewelry Gallery on the second floor, Elegant Armor: The Art of Jewelry features over 130 works of modern and contemporary jewelry from 1948 through the present, drawn from the Museum's collection of nearly 500 modern and contemporary designs.
  • Presented in the permanent collection galleries on the third floor, Permanently MAD: Revealing the Collection marks the first time in the institution's history that its most significant holdings will be on comprehensive view.
  • Forward Thinking: Building the MAD Collection showcases outstanding gifts by many of the Museum's loyal friends and supporters, significantly enriching its collection and ensuring that it will continue to grow in breath, depth, and quality now and in the future.
