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.
