Tonight, the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) is hosting its 2020 MAD Ball virtually. On Zoom, the celebration will honor the artist Judy Chicago, accompanied by an auction on Artsy that will remain open for bidding through 5 p.m. tomorrow.
The live-streamed fête invites attendees to tune in with the night’s host, MX Justin Vivian Bond, and an exciting lineup of performances. In addition to a performance by musician Rosanne Cash, we’ll also be enjoying a conversation led by Chicago. This year’s ball also offers a tribute in memoriam of Nanette L. Laitman, as well as a celebration of MAD Champions Simona and Jerome A. Chazen, Laura and Lewis Kruger, and Barbara and Donald Tober.
The accompanying auction features a selection of works by more than 40 artists that were donated by names like AKTION ART, as well artwork by Judy Chicago—including prints of Butterfly for Brooklyn and Immolation—provided by the museum’s Chairman Emerita, Barbara Tober, from her personal collection. Other artworks up for sale include those by artists like Sanford Biggers, Beth Lipman, Nick Moss, Kiki Smith, Faith Ringgold, Pae White, Caroline Broadhead, and Katie Stout.
