MUSEUM OF ARTS AND DESIGN
In 2008, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) moved to a new location in Columbus Circle so it could display its ever-increasing collection of craft, art and design in a more spectacular setting.
Among the historic and contemporary collections are porcelain by Cindy Sherman, stained glass by Judith Schaechter and jewelry by Margaret de Patta and Betty Cooke. In line with the museum’s mission to bring viewers closer to the artist, the building hosts resident artists whom visitors can view at work in their studios on the sixth floor. Three floors above is Robert, a chic and modern restaurant and lounge with expansive views over Columbus Circle and Central Park. Once you’ve soaked up the museum’s sights, the lounge is perfect for an evening cocktail, followed by comtemporary American fare with Mediterranean influences at the restaurant.
