At MAD, we celebrate the many ways in which art enhances contemporary life. We acknowledge the importance of building strong community relationships and are dedicated to making sure that your sponsorship is a rewarding and mutually beneficial experience. Sponsorship opportunities can include support for educational programming; specific exhibitions; or general operating needs.

Today “Dutch” and “design” are practically synonymous, so it’s no surprise that great design infuses the entire KLM Royal Dutch Airlines experience. Last year, KLM commissioned its world-famous native son—and ’07 MAD Visionary Award winner—Marcel Wanders to rethink the tableware for its World Business Class service. What he created is not only charming, but it’s also crafted out of lightweight materials, which means the aircraft burns less fuel. Inspired design and inventive material use. How MAD is that?
