The permanent collection of the Museum of Arts & Design documents the work of artists in the craft mediums of glass, clay, metal, fiber, and wood. Over 2000 objects comprise the collection, which ranges from jewelry and items of personal adornment to furniture and architectural installations. While the majority of the works were made by American artists, the collection is international in scope, with notable works from Europe, Asia, and Australia. Taken as a whole, the MAD collection highlights the artistís creative engagement with materials and process in both functional and non-functional objects.

The Museum celebrates materials and processes that are today embraced by practitioners in the fields of craft, art and design, as well as architecture, fashion, interior design, technology, performing arts, and art and design-driven industries. The institutionís name reflects the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of the Museumís permanent collection and exhibition programming as it explores objects that are created at the crossroads of craft, art, and design.
