The MAD side of life, a private museum that is both an art space and a modular event venue.
The MAD Museum of Art & Design is worth a visit for the quirky, curious and revelatory pieces tastefully curated and exhibited on two levels; paintings, graffiti, sculptures, furniture and the odd this and that.
It is more than just a gallery of contemporary art, featuring local, regional and international artists, both upcoming and established; it is convention sidestepped, it is quotidian in a new perspective, it is a freshness in the ordinary and the everyday.
It is also a whisky and cigar lounge, a bistro, an alfresco garden, a lounge and a museum shop.
So, for design, for cutting-edge in product, furniture, art objects and collectables, for ideas, for a fascinating trip into fascinating minds, MAD it is – for kids and adults alike !
