LOOT: MAD About Jewelry 2016
Jewelry so beautiful, it’s criminal
By Sarah Emily Gilbert
Now until April 16, 2016, The Museum of Arts and Design presents LOOT: MAD About Jewelry, its annual exhibition and sale featuring designs from more than 40 emerging and acclaimed international jewelry artists. Now in its 16th edition, LOOT has become known as the ultimate pop-up shop for contemporary artist-made jewelry, where collectors and jewelry enthusiasts have the rare opportunity to meet and acquire pieces from some of the most innovative creators in the field.
LOOT 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.
Proceeds from LOOT: MAD About Jewelry benefit the Museum’s exhibitions and education programs.
