Fodor's Review

In a funky-looking white building right across the street from the Time-Warner Center, the Museum of Arts and Design celebrates joyful quirkiness and personal, sometimes even obsessive, artistic visions. The art is human-scale here, much of it neatly housed in display cases rather than on the walls, with a strong focus on contemporary jewelry, glass, ceramic, fiber, wood, and mixed-media works. Recent exhibits included Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital,

which examined the use of computer-assisted production in creative fields, and Body & Soul: New International Ceramics, which explored the use of ceramics to convey emotion. Thursday evening is a good time to drop by; the admission is pay-what-you-wish.
