Add to Calendar 06-10-2014 10-10-2014 15 LOOT: MAD About Jewelry Now, in its 14th year, LOOT: MAD About Jewelry, MAD's juried selling exhibition of artist-made jewelry, has earned the reputation of being the ultimate pop-up shop for contemporary art and studio jewelry by both artists and collectors alike. LOOT will feature a range of work, including inventive pieces in gold, sterling silver, and semiprecious stones alongside jewelry made of unexpected materials such as titanium, stainless steel, glass, wood, rubber, fabric, and found objects. Unlike any other jewelry event in the country, LOOT gives jewelry lovers the opportunity to meet some of the most innovative creators in the field and acquire work directly from them. Last year, MAD honored fashion icons Iris Apfel and Barbara Berger with LOOT Awards for Contemporary Art Jewelry. This annual prize is in keeping with the long-standing commitment of the Museum of Arts and Design to present jewelry as an art form. MAD is the only American museum to possess a gallery dedicated to the display of both temporary jewelry exhibits and its own collection of contemporary and modern studio and art jewelry, which it began assembling soon after its founding in 1956. To date, LOOT has showcased famous jewelry artists like Eva Eisler, Robert Lee Morris and Kara Ross along with newer names - thus becoming an important platform to launch the careers of many young, cutting-edge creators from around the globe. In 2013, 50 jewelry artists from 20 countries - including Argentina, Denmark, Indonesia, Japan, Poland, South Africa, South Korea, and the United Kingdom - participated. This year's participating LOOT artists and LOOT Award recipient will be announced in the spring. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=128191 Museum of Arts & Design true DD/MM/YYYY
