Founded in 1946 by Carmelo Arden Quin, this intellectual art movement encompasses a complex yet entertaining spirit of joie de vivre and innovation through use of geometric forms: circles, stripes, waves, spheres, spirals, lozenges, arcs and meanders. The MADI philosophy is demonstrated through drawings, paintings, sculptures, architecture, theater, music, poetry, dance, novels and stories. See the enclosed overview on MADI art for more detail. The mission of The MADI Museum and Gallery is to delight, inspire, educate and communicate through the collection, preservation, exhibition and interpretation of unique and memorable MADI art from around the world.
