About MAD Magazine
In circulation for over half a century, and revered as one of the most influential forms of satire and humor in American popular culture, MAD Magazine has a tradition of their own form of storytelling.
KANEKO is a non-profit cultural organization dedicated to exploring and encouraging the creative process and how it impacts our lives. Established by internationally renowned sculptor Jun Kaneko and his wife, Ree, KANEKO was conceived of as “open space for your mind,” a place where thoughtful examination of others’ ideas through exhibitions and public programs leads us to new and exciting ideas of our own.
