The new Museum of Arts and Design Building

The new Museum of Arts and Design at 2 Columbus Circle in NYC opened to the public in September 2008. Formerly the American Craft Museum, the institution is dedicated to the collection and exhibition of contemporary objects created in media such as clay, glass, wood, metal, and fiber.

For the first time in its history, the Museum will have dedicated space for its permanent collection. The new building will also house its educational programs and three artist-in-residence studios, making the Museum the first multi-disciplinary institution to offer arts-in-education, hands-on art-making, and art making within the museum experience.
