Contemporary Jewelry and Adornment Circle

Deepen your knowledge of art jewelry while helping to shape the future of MAD’s collection.

Led by associate curator Barbara Paris Gifford, our Contemporary Jewelry and Adornment Circle offers Members exclusive access to the Museum’s stellar jewelry and adornment collection. Discussions, tours, artist interactions, and in-depth examination of objects will deepen participants’ knowledge. Whether new to the world of jewelry and adornment or already passionate about these ever-evolving fields, Members will learn more from experts and fellow enthusiasts. At the end of each year, Members will help to select new works to become part of MAD’s esteemed collection.

Members of the Museum's Collector Circles must contribute annual dues of $2,500 per individual. Ninety percent of these dues directly support the purchase of art for the collection. To join, you must be a MAD Member at the Gallery level ($500) or above. Joining MAD’s Patron level ($1,500) is highly encouraged.
