The Haas Brothers

Our online benefit auction is now open! Browse and bid today!

On November 4, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) will honor the Haas Brothers at the MAD Ball, New York's most highly anticipated event of the year. MAD Ball is the Museum’s single most important fundraiser and all proceeds support MAD and its education, public, and exhibition programs. Held at Cipriani 42nd Street, the art-and-design-filled celebration with DJ Mia Moretti will begin at 6:30 pm with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner and an award designed by KiKi Smith presented to the honorees at 7:30 pm.

In addition to honoring the Haas Brothers, MAD will announce the winner of the Museum's Burke Prize. Named in honor of longtime MAD supporters, Marian and Rusty Burke, the prize recognizes the next generation working in and advancing the disciplines that shaped the American studio craft movement.   

Tribute ads in our electronic journal are available. For more information, please call Rebekka Grossman at 212.299.7712 or email

We look forward to having you join us to celebrate the achievements of these extraordinary individuals!
