Venue Description: After several name changes and numerous relocations, New York City?s leading contemporary object institution is now known as the Museum of Arts and Design and housed in a completely redesigned building, covering four floors and more than 54,000 square feet. The museum?s mission is to ?collect, display, and interpret objects that document contemporary and historic innovation in craft, art, and design. In its exhibitions and educational programs, the museum celebrates the creative process through which materials are crafted into works that enhance contemporary life.? With the creation of the American Craftsmen?s Council in 1942, Aileen Osborn Webb planted the seeds that made the museum what it is today. The council went on to hold competitions and educational programs that celebrated handmade objects and encouraged excellence in their craftsmanship. In 1956 came the long-awaited establishment of the Museum of Contemporary Crafts. The museum was renamed the American Craft Museum 30 years later, and moved to a new location to accommodate the its growing mass of supporters. The museum continued to grow, and also began to broaden the scope of art it presented. It adopted its current name in 2002 to reflect its artistic evolution. According to its website: ?Today, the museum celebrates materials and processes that are embraced by practitioners in the fields of craft, art and design, as well as architecture, fashion, interior design, technology, performing arts, and art and design-driven industries.? The Museum of Arts and Design is open year round Wednesday-Sunday 11am-6pm, Thursday until 9pm; closed Monday-Tuesday and all major holidays.
