Now in its sixteenth edition, Loot: MAD About Jewelry will present a cross-section of exciting, cutting-edge art jewelry designs, and offers the public an opportunity to acquire pieces directly from skilled creators in the field. With the annual exhibit the Museum of Arts and Design in New York promotes designs from international emerging and acclaimed jewelry artists, many of whom have never before shown work in the United States. Forty-four artists from seventeen countries have been invited to participate in this year’s edition by curator Bryna Pomp after months of travel and research. “By moving Loot to the spring, we hope to broaden awareness of both this largely underexposed area of jewelry and our invited artists. Retailers and galleries regularly attend; we’ve launched many careers”, says Pomp. MAD is the only American museum with a gallery dedicated to the display of both temporary jewelry exhibits and its own collection of contemporary and modern studio and art jewelry. A press preview and walkthrough for the exhibition will be held on Monday April 11, 2016, at 2:30 pm. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Museum’s exhibition and education programs.
