Have you ever wondered at the massive green glass tower rising over you as you enjoyed a cup of coffee in the Museum’s Shapiro Courtyard? From early Colonial workshops to the imposing creations of Dale Chihuly, glass has a rich history in the art production of the United States. In this talk, we will explore the rise of glass as medium for individual artistic exploration during the Studio Craft Movement of the mid-twentieth century. Join graduate student lecturer and professionally-trained glassblower, Fletcher Coleman, to discover the past, present, and future of glass art in America. To attend the gallery talk, meet in the Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Visitor Center.
