Exhibition - Hanging Around: Neckpieces from the MAD Collection

So we've been hearing about the newest
exhibition being held at the
Museum of Arts and Design in NYC called,

Necklaces of all types are on display from 75 artists
and materials range from items

as unconventional as pig intestines, gun triggers, mustard seeds, LED lighting, black coral, butterfly wings, phone directories, mirrors and lenses. The fabrication techniques employed by the artists are as different as traditional goldsmithing and cutting-edge digital prototyping.”

 Included are iconic pieces such as
 this vibrant creation by sculptural jewelry artist
Marjorie Schick

and an example of the thread paintings created by
 fiber artist Missy Stevens

and this unusual piece by Maria Phillips
made with pig intestine stretched over
a steel frame

There are many more works to view
from such notables as
Arline Fisch, Nancy Worden, Cynthia Toops,
Kiff Slemmons, Joyce Scott, and Liv Blavarp.

This exhibit runs from January 24 to May 21, 2012.

See more at the MAD website.
