Mad about MAD

The Museum of Arts and Design, located in Columbus Circle, is definitely worth a visit.

Mural made of dust and dirt

My favorite of the current exhibitions was “Swept Away”, which included different artworks made with dust, dirt, soil etc.

More smoke art

I participated in a guided tour, which went through all the different floors and exhibitions. In addition to the dirt, two floors were dedicated to the art of Native Americans. One floor featured different kinds of jewelry.

Mohawks helped building the most famous buildings in New York

The admission to MAD is 12 dollars for a student. For that price you get a guided tour, and access to 5 floors of, well, art and design.
