Mirla, I so wished I could go. But I live 9 hours away from NYC and that is just too much to travel. My buddy Sarah Abramson (also on crafthaus) might go though, she is one of the MAD's resident artists and they just acquired one of her brooches for their permanent collection!
I wish you the best for the opening, I know it is going to be GREAT. My consolation is that recently, the Center for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh had a Latin American Craft show and I saw that Plantain necklace there, and a few other really wonderful pieces :-) Enjoy NYC.
