Free with Museum admission, LOOT invites collectors and jewelry enthusiasts to meet the creators of spectacular wearable art, learn about their inspiration and processes, and take home one-of-a-kind works of contemporary art jewelry. Proceeds from LOOT: MAD About Jewelry benefit the Museum’s exhibitions and educational programs.


MAD is the only American museum to possess a gallery dedicated to the display of both special jewelry exhibitions and the Museum’s nearly encyclopedic collection of contemporary and modern studio and art jewelry. Now on view, 45 Stories in Jewelry: 1947 to Now highlights the Museum of Arts and Design’s contributions to the field’s advancements and contextualizes the bold experimental practices of its most compelling artists within the key historical moments that ultimately broadened the scope and reach of art as a wearable medium.

LOOT is made possible in part by our sponsor:
