H E I D I L E E​ on visionaireworld : MAD’s NYC MAKERS 

In July 2014, the MAD | Museum of Arts and Design inaugurates NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial, an exhibition that spotlights the creative communities thriving across the five boroughs today. The first exhibition to be organized under the leadership of MAD’s new Director Glenn Adamson, NYC Makers showcases the work of 100 makers—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 serves as a platform not only for makers who typically display their work in a museum setting, but also those who operate behind the scenes.The exhibition is structured as a series of immersive tableaus that present the diverse creative output of makers alongside one another.

MAD | Museum of Arts and Design's new exhibition gives you an idea of what future artistry might look like.
