MAD MEN Exhibition Comes To New York’s Museum Of The Moving Image

MAD MEN Exhibition Comes To New York’s Museum Of The Moving Image

AMC’s critically acclaimed Mad Men is coming to an end after seven seasons this year, beginning their final seven-episode run this April. I know, it sucks, I think we all would have gladly followed the lives of everyone at Sterling/Cooper  Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce Sterling Cooper & Partners well into the seventies and eighties and beyond, but all good things must come to an end. But if you want to say goodbye to the world of Mad Men properly, and you happen to find yourself in Astoria, New York, then you might want to visit the Museum of the Moving Image, which currently is exhibiting Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men, an exhibit of props, costumes, and even sets from the iconic television series.

Included in this exhibit are Matthew Weiner’s early handwritten notes and script pages that go back to 1992, which would ultimately form the basis of the show when it finally premiered some fifteen years later. Thirty-three costumes from the series are on display, along with the box of Don Draper’s secrets from his former life as Dick Whitman, a music listening station, and video clips from each season, featuring introductions by series creator Matthew Weiner. Maybe the coolest part is you can actually step onto the sets from the series, including Don and Betty Draper’s suburban New York home, and Don’s office from SC&P, including a stocked bar cart (of course), and framed photos of his kids Sally and Bobby, and his wife Megan.

The exhibit will be open from March 14 to June 14 in the Changing Exhibitions Gallery, with some pieces remaining in the permanent exhibition once the series ends. Check out our gallery of images from the exhibition below:

    It’s still isn’t about Al Feldstein handling the Usual Gang of Idiots and dealing with Bill Gaines in New York of the ’60s, dammit. (That guy Hamm doen’t even look like him.)
    But yeah, it’s a good show anyways.

      Doesn’t matter.  It’s still a work of art that permeated the zeitgeist of fashion and storytelling
