The Brown Club in New York is proud to present a special viewing and private tour of LOOT: MAD about Jewelry. The private tour will be conducted by the exhibition's curator Bryna Prop who has reviewed thousands of artists and designers to discover the most unique art jewelry. The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) presents LOOT: MAD About Jewelry, its annual five-day exhibition and sale of contemporary art jewelry, with all proceeds benefiting the Museum's programs and exhibitions. Now in its 18th edition, LOOT remains the only event in North America to provide the public with the opportunity to meet and directly acquire contemporary pieces from the most skilled, innovative, and creative jewelry artists working globally today. Open to the public from April 17 through April 21, this year's LOOT features a curated selection of jewelry by thirty-five international emerging and established artists.


Attendees are welcome to join us after the event for a cocktail at the museum's acclaimed restaurant Robert with its striking decor and stunning views of Columbus Circle.


The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) champions contemporary makers across creative fields and presents the work of artists, designers, and artisans who apply the highest level of ingenuity and skill. Since the Museum's founding in 1956 by philanthropist and visionary Aileen Osborn Webb, MAD has celebrated all facets of making and the creative processes by which materials are transformed, from traditional techniques to cutting-edge technologies. Today, the Museum’s curatorial program builds upon a rich history of exhibitions that emphasize a cross-disciplinary approach to art and design, and reveals the workmanship behind the objects and environments that shape our everyday lives. MAD provides an international platform for practitioners who are influencing the direction of cultural production and driving twenty-first-century innovation, and fosters a participatory setting for visitors to have direct encounters with skilled making and compelling works of art and design.

Special thank you to Marsy Mittlemann, The Loot 2018 Chair, for organizing this event.
