The artists represented in the permanent collection at The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art span not only geographical but chronological boundaries as well. Artists from Europe, Russia, Japan, South America and the United States are well represented by the museum. Beginning with the MADI movement’s inception and continuing through contemporary artists working in the geometric style, the artists of the permanent collection exhibit one similarity, a love for geometric forms, color play, and art that pushes boundaries.
MADI is a great artistic adventure, and perhaps, the only existing movement which can justify half a century of existance. MADI is more than an avant-garde movement; it has an underlying wave with several and differing offspring. It is the slow-paced growth of a tectonic plate in the history of art. Indeed, since art and environment are perveived as the fusion of two cultural phenomena, the progression and expression of both of these blend in everyday life.
