On Wednesday, March 15, Ruth Lande Shuman hosted 50 guests for a cocktail reception to celebrate the Museum of Arts and Design’s LOOT: MAD about Jewelry, the annual exhibition and sale held from April 3rd through April 8th. To mark the occasion, guests arrived adorned in LOOT jewelry from past years.

Michele Cohen (LOOT Chair) and Barbara Tober (MAD's Board Member) both wore jewelry from LOOT's Corporate Sponsor Paolo Costagli.  LOOT's Curator Bryna Pomp wore LOOT 2017 artist Inni Pärnänen, who is based in Helsinki. 

Guests that attended the event included: Susan Ach, Dorothea Basile, Meredith Bernstein, Joyce Brooks (Black Tie International), Sara Cassis, Michele Cohen, Paolo Costagli, Valerie Evans-Freke, Anna Frammolino. Fernanda Garcia (¡HOLA! TV), Boo Grace, Joan Hornig, Pat Langer, Hillary Latos (The Resident), Luisa Laviola, Bruce Lazarus, Valerie A. Lettan, Nancy Jane Loewy, Karen Mandelbaum, Stacey Mayrock, Robin McFadden, Marsy Mittlemann, Bryna Pomp, Barbara Regna, Deborah Roberts, Dara Schaefer, Donna Schragis, Lois Severini, Ruth Lande Shuman, Barbara Tober, Barbara Waldman, Janet Winter, Vevlyn Wright (The Wright Wreport) and Jan Wysocki.  

Now in its 17th edition, the annual exhibition and sale of contemporary art jewelry presents a cross-section of the most exciting cutting-edge art jewelry designs while offering the public a rare opportunity to meet and acquire pieces directly from some of the most skilled creators in the field. A striking example of the evolving possibilities of jewelry as an art form, LOOT: MAD About Jewelry champions the vision and craftsmanship of outstanding art jewelers—most of whom have never before shown work in the United States.

Each year, the LOOT Award is presented to luminaries in the field of jewelry, including artists, collectors, and designers. This year’s honorees are Camilla Dietz Bergeron, Francine LeFrak, and Kara Ross. Previous recipients include Iris Apfel, collector Barbara Berger, jewelry designer Joan Hornig, fashion designer Kay Unger, and artists Joyce Scott and Axel Russmeyer.

World-renowned English fashion designer Dame Zandra Rhodes is the 2017 Honorary Chair and will attend the annual exhibition and sale, as well as the LOOT Opening Benefit. 

The LOOT 2017 Opening Benefit takes place on Monday, April 3. The evening’s events include first access for patrons to meet the 2017 LOOT artists and acquire their designs; a cocktail reception; and a dinner honoring the 2017 LOOT Award recipients. The exhibition will be on view and cocktails served from 4:30 until 8:00 pm. The dinner, at MAD’s ROBERT restaurant, begins at 7:30 pm.
