The Museum of Arts and Design, formerly the American Craft Museum, moved to its new home at 2 Columbus Circle in Manhattan in September 2008.
The Museum of Arts and Design’s first exhibitions opens tomorrow and one of the exhibitions, “Second Lives”, includes Jean Shin’s awesome piece entitled “Sound Wave”.
Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary features work by 50 international established and emerging artists from all five continents who create objects and installations comprised of ordinary and everyday manufactured articles, most originally made for another functional purpose.
