At Pier 60, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) hosted its annual MAD Ball—marking its 60th anniversary–to hand out its Visionaries! Awards last night. Hosted by Barney’s creative ambassador at large, Simon Doonan, this year’s gala honored MAD trustee Charles S. Cohen; the late architect Zaha Hadid; Angela Missoni; and conceptual artist Yinka Shonibare MBE. Each year, MAD calls out cutting-edge, creative works to give a platform to the people and workmanship that drive innovation. Over 500 guests from the arts and design worlds joined to celebrate last night, including: Jonathan Adler, Andi Potamkin Blackmore, Anna Cleveland, Pat Cleveland, Shari Siadat Loeffler, Rosita and Angela Missoni, Ralph Pucci, Patrik Schumacher, Stefano Tonchi, John Targon and Scott Studenberg, Sally Singer, and more. New York-based artist Tom Sachs created the trophies that were awarded to each of the honorees. See photos from the soirée, below!
