Peter Frank of LA Weekly asserts: “Not since the Museum of non-Objective Art in New York morphed into the Guggenheim Museum more than half a century ago has there been anything like this in North America.”
Quite a statement! Frank is referring to the MADI Museum in Uptown Dallas — the first gallery devoted solely to MADI art.
What is MADI art, you may ask? Good question. No one really knows the origin of its name, but, in short, MADI is an avant-garde movement founded by Carmelo Arden Quin in the 1940’s in Argentina. The art form resembles Cubism: lots of bright colors and geometric design. (Just take a look at the museum exterior and you’ll get the picture!)
And, who would have thought that the MADI building also houses a law practice? Indeed, it does. Attorney Bill Masterson, the museum’s founder and MADI enthusiast (clearly!), is also president of Kilgore & Kilgore law firm.
