Opening Benefit

On Monday, April 16, 2018, the Museum of Arts and Design will host the LOOT 2018 Opening Benefit from 4:30 to 8:00pm. The evening’s events include first access for patrons to meet the 2018 LOOT artists and acquire their designs, a cocktail hour and reception, as well as a dinner honoring the 2018 LOOT Award recipients. The dinner begins at 7:30pm.

Each year, the LOOT Award is presented to luminaries in the field of jewelry, including artists, collectors, and designers. This annual prize is in keeping with the long-standing commitment of the Museum of Arts and Design to presenting jewelry as an art form. This year we will honor writer, producer, and philanthropist Loreen Arbus, whose career achievements include becoming the first woman to head programming for a major television network; Carolee Lee, former CEO and founder of Carolee Designs and AccessCircles; and collectors Karen and Michael Rotenberg.
