MAD opens in Columbus Circle

The New York Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) moved to a new site, at 2 Columbus Circle. It will open on September 27. The old site (40 W 53-rd Street) has closed.

Three exhibitions will start on the opening day: Elegant Armor (innovative pieces of jewelery created from the 1940s to the present; four thematics - sculptural forms, narrative jewelry, painted and textured surfaces, radical edge); Second Lives (objects and installations comprised of ordinary and everyday manufactured articles, most originally made for another functional purpose - see also ArtLog); Permanently MAD (works from the permanent collection).

If you look at MAD's web site and browse the pages devoted to the three exhibitions you'll discover amazing art works. I chose for here just a chair: believe me, it's the finest choice! Ray Charles touched it once and said that he felt the soul of the hardwood!
