On Wednesday, November 20, 2013, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) hosted its 2013 Visionaries Gala, celebrating five influential creators and leaders in the art, craft, and design industries, whose work personifies the Museum’s mission to explore and celebrate contemporary creativity across all media: Wilfried Vancraen, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Materialise; Frank Stella, legendary painter and printmaker, most noted for his Minimalist, Post-Painterly Abstract works; Rick Kinsel, Executive Director, The Vilcek Foundation; David and Sybil Yurman, founders and creative directors of David Yurman.

This year’s Visionaries! Awards celebrated MAD’s 5th anniversary at 2 Columbus Circle and the dramatic growth of the institution since its move, looking ahead to an exciting roster of exhibitions and programs for 2013-2014. Since moving in 2008, MAD has welcomed more than a million visitors onsite, tripled its membership and greatly expanded its exhibition and educational offerings.
