LOOT is the Museum of Arts and Design’s annual exhibition and sale of one-of-a-kind contemporary jewelry created by more than 40 of the world’s most innovative jewelry artists working in a range of materials including silver, pearls, and semiprecious stones, as well as more unconventional materials like glass, wood, hand-painted canvas, porcelain, papier mache, concrete, zinc, sequins, and feathers. For most of these artists this is their New York debut; all will be at the Museum to meet you and discuss their work.
