The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) will honor luminaries from the worlds of art, fashion, real estate, and design at its most highly anticipated event of the year, the MAD Ball. Honorees exemplify the Museum’s mission to celebrate leadership and the creative process through which materials are crafted into objects and design that enhance contemporary life. Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta, luxury car company Cadillac, artist Nancy Rubins, architect Annabelle Selldorf, and socially-conscious real estate investment firm that supports New York’s artist community Sugar Hill Capital Partners are this year’s honorees.

MAD Ball is the Museum’s single most important fundraiser and all proceeds help fund MAD’s education, public and exhibition programs, and general operations, which serve over 300,000 people per year.  We look forward to having you join us to celebrate the achievements of these extraordinary individuals!

Our artist and art-filled celebration will begin at 6:30pm with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner, an awards presentation emceed by Jerry Saltz, and will conclude with an after party with DJ Mia Moretti at 9:00pm. .
