My husband and I enjoyed three exhibits at our recent visit to the Museum of Arts and Design: La Frontera—Encounters Along the Border. What a moving display.

This is not a conventional art gallery or museum, so I suppose it won't be for everyone -- but art doesn't have to be famous or conventional to be interesting and/or beautiful. Unfortunately this is a small museum; I wish I could have seen more....More

The Museum of Arts and Design, or MAD, will satisfy museum goers of any age, as long as the creative spirit is still intact.

The first time I visited the MAD, I felt like I was wandering the exhibits a bit cluelessly. THIS time I knew just what I was looking for, and would be looking at -- a long-awaited and previously-researched show of works by Miriam Schapiro. Serendipitously,...More

One of my favorite museums in NYC. They have wonderful temporary exhibits. If possible take the free docent tour. Very informative. Tour lasts about one hour. Take the stairs down as they have items from their permanent collection in the stairwells. This museum is also...More
