The Museum of Art and Design launched NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial this month, an exuberant exhibition highlighting creative communities throughout New York City. One hundred makers have been chosen for a carefully curated selection of the most inventive designers in the city today across a myriad of mediums, including furniture, fashion, film, art, architecture, food, education, and textiles. (Be sure to check out the incredible floor by one of our favorite collaborators, Inigo Elizalde Rugs, in the installation by Rafael de Cardenas of Architecture at Large!)

In conjunction with the exhibit, MAD will host a variety of family programs for kids. Studio Sundays (July 27, August 3, and August 10, 2014 at 2:00pm) will explore different aspects of the exhibition. On July 27, the studio will encourage children to identify makers in their own community and think about the ways in which everyone can be a maker. On August 3, kids can experiment with stop-motion animation. August 10 will focus on architecture and encourage collaborative architectural design.
