Program Description

Since the Museum’s founding in 1956 by the visionary Aileen Osborn Webb, MAD has celebrated all facets of making and the creative processes by which materials are transformed, from traditional techniques to cutting-edge technologies. Today, the Museum builds upon this rich history of exhibitions and programs that emphasize a cross-disciplinary approach to art and design, and reveals the workmanship behind the objects and environments that shape our everyday lives.

The panel will gather together Paul Smith, Museum Director from 1963 - 1987; Jack Lenor Larsen, America's foremost textile designer and the longest-serving trustee in the history of the Museum; and Glenn Adamson, current Nanette L. Laitman Director. Moderated by Jeannine Falino, Curator of What Would Mrs. Webb Do? A Founder's Vision, the discussion will trace this history as well as look forward to the new horizons of this unique institution.
