part two of the final season of the hugely popular series mad men kicked off earlier this week in the u.s., and while many die-hard fans regret having to part ways with don, betty, roger and the rest of the iconic characters, there's also a silver lining to the farewell. we're talking the matthew weiner's mad men exhibition at the museum of the moving image in new york city. the showcase gives an interesting insight in the creative process behind the lauded tv show, and does so by presenting large-scale sets, including don draper’s office and the kitchen from the draper’s home in upstate new york, more than 25 costumes, props, video clips, advertising art, and personal notes and research material from series creator matthew weiner. mind you, the exhibition marks the first time objects relating to the production of mad men will be shown in public on this scale [on through sep 6]. location: museum of the moving image36-01 35th avenue [astoria].
