mission

Creativity at work at one of our MakeArt workshopsMission

To Showcase and explore exceptional examples of contemporary work in the fields of craft and design through engaging exhibitions and public programs.

MCD’s exhibitions focus on craft and design in all media. They introduce visitors to a broad range of artists and designers, and to the many approaches to creative expression in these fields. Education programs address a wide variety of topics. Those offered in association with exhibitions enable children, families, and adults to gain a greater understanding of the art and artists presented. Hands-on activities for children through the MakeArt program also give young people an opportunity to explore their creativity.
