"Brush," "Scent" and "Fire" at the Museum of Art and Design

Sandy Skoglund, Breathing Glass, 2000 at Museum of Art and Design

The Museum of Art and Design is "on fire" with its current exhibitions on contemporary glass design, Daniel Brush's golden objects, the art of fragrance, and Islamic treasures from Doris Duke's magnificent mansion Shangri-La. An elegant architectural space in its own right, MAD is becoming the hot spot in NYC for those in the know (especially their restaurant Robert's on the top floor with its fabulous view of Central Park).

Playing with Fire: 50 Years of Contemporary Glass, through April 7
Daniel Brush: Blue Steel Gold Light, through February 24
The Art of Scent: 1889-2012, through March 3
Doris Duke's Shangri-La: Architecture, Landscape and Islamic Art, through February 17

The Museum of Art and Design, 2 Columbus Circle (at the convergence of 59th Street, Eight Ave, and Broadway).

Please join the New York Arts Exchange for a conversational tour on Tuesday, February 5 at 1 pm.
