Mad Men Will Be Canonized at Museums Across U.S.

—On March 14, New York’s Museum of the Moving Image launches “Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men,” a three-month installment consisting of re-creations of sets from the show, more than two dozen costumes, and “hundreds of props, video clips, and personal notes and research material.” There’ll also be a look inside the Mad Men writers’ room and video interviews with Weiner about his process. The museum is also launching a ten-film screening series called “Required Viewing: Mad Men’s Movie Influences,” with Weiner-selected titles such as Les Bonnes Femmes and The Apartment. And on March 20, MoMI will host "An Evening With Matthew Weiner," a live Q&A with the producer and an as-yet-named moderator.

—The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is hosting a two-day series (March 26–27) in which Weiner and select cast members will screen their favorite episodes of the show and then discuss them with Elvis Mitchell.
