Moving Forward at Museum of Arts and Design

Just a few months into his position as the newly minted director, it’s clear that Christopher Scoates was the right man for the job at the Museum of Arts and Design. MAD, as it’s known, is New York City’s champion and presenter of artists, designers, and artisans at the highest level of ingenuity and craftsmanship. Scoates, who relocated to New York from Michigan’s Cranbrook Academy of Art and Art Museum, is bringing with him a pedigreed past in the arts along with a vision of how to steer MAD into the rest of this century.
