Art and jewelry collectors will have the rare opportunity to buy pieces from some of the most innovative jewelry artists in the world at LOOT 2011: MAD about Jewelry, the 11th annual contemporary art and jewelry exhibition at Manhattan’s Museum of Arts and Design (MAD). From October 11 through October 14, approximately 50 emerging and established artists—including American artist Robert Lee Morris, Italian designer and sculptor Giorgio Vigna, and Japanese metalsmith Asagi Maeda—will sell contemporary art jewelry valued from $200 to $12,000. Exhibitors will present work in traditional materials, such as gold, silver, and semi-precious stones, as well as innovative materials, including wood, paper, enamel, horn, aluminum, rope, and bone.

General admission is $15; tickets for the opening-day events and early access may be purchased in advance for $250 to $5,000. Proceeds go toward the museum’s exhibition and education programs. (212.299.7777, www.madmuseum.org)
