MUSEUM OF ART AND DESIGN (MAD)

16 May

We went to the Museum of Art and Design, located on Columbus Circle, it’s very nice, and there are about five floors of exhibits. While we were there they were showing a lot of African and African-American art. PARENTAL DISCRETION ADVISED: some of this art is shows some naughty bits.

Here is an interesting table.

These scarabs are actually part of a bookcase. Very pretty but it might creep me out if I owned it.

There were a bunch of cocktail glasses in the window of the stairwell. Here are some of my favorites.
