Intro
This exhibition has been updated with complementary texts and images of the opening.

This internationally renowned, juried exhibition of contemporary jewelry is the oldest and most visited exhibition of its kind. Inaugurated in Munich in 1959, Schmuck (German for "jewelry") has been held there every year. Over the decades, Schmuck has enjoyed growing attendance as well as increasingly important attention from the international press. In 2006, the exhibition includes works by 60 established and emerging artists from more than 20 countries. The pieces are created by leading international jewelry artists known for their innovative approaches to materials and techniques.

This is the premiere showing of Schmuck in the United States and is part of a continuing program of jewelry-related projects that will culminate in the Center for the Study of Contemporary Jewelry at MAD’s new home at Two Columbus Circle.
