On View: Re: Collection at the Museum of Arts and Design

As part of the celebrations surrounding the Museum of Arts and Design’s five years in its Columbus Circle locale, they are presenting an exhibition not to be missed – Re: Collection. Chief Curator Emeritus David McFadden opened up the vaults for the exhibition, which features 70 works across multiple mediums including sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, furniture and textiles.

Choosing which art to display was a challenge particularly since Mr. McFadden added over 2,000 works to MAD’s collection in the past sixteen years. Key to curating the exhibition was to emphasize the museum’s diversity of American and international artists, its commitment to works by both men and women, and showcasing the variety of materials and techniques which comprise contemporary visual arts.

“The MAD collection is international in scope and significance,” said Mr. McFadden.  “These works are very meaningful to me, and I trust that our visitors will share my enthusiasm for them.”

Re: Collection is on view at the Museum of Arts and Design through September 7, 2014.
