LOOT: MAD About Jewelry is the Museum of Arts and Design's annual six-day exhibition and sale featuring designs from emerging and acclaimed jewelry artists. Championing the vision and craftsmanship of international studio and art jewelers—many of whom have never before shown work in the US—LOOT often serves as a launch pad for the next generation of designers. Since its launch, LOOT has become a premier pop-up shop for contemporary art jewelry, offering the public a rare opportunity to meet and acquire pieces directly from some of the most skilled creators in the field. With over 50 designers on-site throughout the exhibition and sale, LOOT offers one of New York's most unique shopping experiences. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Museum's exhibition and education programs. LOOT: MAD About Jewelry is a striking example of the enduring vitality and evolving possibilities of jewelry as an art form.

The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) champions contemporary makers across creative fields, presenting artists, designers, and artisans who apply the highest level of ingenuity and skill to their work. Since the Museum's founding in 1956 by philanthropist and visionary Aileen Osborn Webb, MAD has celebrated all facets of making and the creative processes by which materials are transformed, from traditional techniques to cutting-edge technologies. Today, the Museum's curatorial program builds upon a rich history of exhibitions that emphasize a cross-disciplinary approach to art and design, and reveals the workmanship behind the objects and environments that shape our everyday lives. MAD provides an international platform for practitioners who are influencing the direction of cultural production and driving 21st-century innovation, fostering a participatory setting for visitors to have direct encounters with skilled making and compelling works of art and design.
