I’m thrilled to announce that you can now find fail in the MAD Museum!   Having my line represented in museum shops is at my top and I couldn’t be happier with a museum like MAD thinking that my pieces are worthy!  If you are not yet familiar with the MAD Museum, get ready for the rundown.

“MAD champions contemporary makers across creative fields, presenting artists, designers, and artisans who apply the highest level of ingenuity and skill to their work. Since the Museum’s founding in 1956 by philanthropist and visionary Aileen Osborn Webb, MAD has celebrated all facets of making and the creative processes by which materials are transformed, from traditional techniques to cutting-edge technologies.”
Located in New York City, the museum fosters a participatory setting for visitors to have direct encounters with skilled making and compelling works of art and design.
