The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) will honor luminaries from the worlds of art, fashion, real estate, and design at its most highly anticipated event of the year, the MAD Ball. Honorees exemplify the Museum’s mission to celebrate leadership and the creative process through which materials are crafted into objects and design that enhance contemporary life. Bottega Veneta, Nancy Rubins, and Annabelle Selldorf are this year’s honorees.

MAD Ball is the Museum’s single most important fundraiser and all proceeds help fund MAD’s education, public and exhibition programs, and general operations, which serve over 300,000 people per year.  We look forward to having you join us to celebrate the achievements of these extraordinary individuals!
