Hood By Air is “Art”

The Museum of Arts and Design keeps a close eye on what’s hip in NYC culture. Their latest exhibition, NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial, highlights the creative communities across all boroughs of the city. Selecting 100 “makers,” the exhibition spans multitudes of design, spotlighting “highly inventive artisans, artists, and designers who create objects or environments through exquisite workmanship and skill.“

Of the makers selected is one Shayne Oliver, founder of Hood By Air. The label, which has experienced exponential growth in its short tenure and played pioneer to the “street goth” movement, will be displayed alongside names like Blue Bottle Coffee, Marilyn Minter, and Eckhaus Latta. According to the MAD Museum website, “every maker selected demonstrates the highest level of skill in their respective field, whether by fabricating furniture or fashion; creating artworks, films, and architecture; inventing new possibilities for food; or reshaping educational and social gatherings.”

So in other words, Hood By Air is now considered art thanks to the Museum of Arts and Design. Check out the schedule of events coinciding with the exhibit, which is running through October 12, here.
