MAD’s Education Center serves as a space for stimulating conversations and fosters exchange among a broad public.
Through dialogue, workshops, demonstrations, and classes—in which participation is integral—students, their teachers and others can be enriched. The MAD Education Department creates opportunities for audiences of all backgrounds to celebrate the experimental practice of contemporary artists, designers, and craftspeople. We welcome public engagement in learning experiences throughout the museum.
Ongoing support for the Museum’s education programs is provided by the William Randolph Hearst Endowment Fund for Education and Outreach Programs. MADlab K-12 is made possible in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund; City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn; Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer; Councilmembers Gale A. Brewer and Jessica S. Lappin; and the Newman's Own Foundation. Arts Access is also made possible with generous funding from the Keith Haring Foundation. Arts Reach is also made possible with the generous support of the Fondation d'entreprise Hermés and the New York Community Trust.
