MASTERS OF STUDIO GLASS: Selections from the Permanent Collection

June 4, 2016 – September 11, 2016

Masters of Studio Glass offers a dazzling cross section of American glass artists whose works are a study in contrast. Beginning with Dominick Labino and Harvey Littleton, known as the father of the Studio Glass movement, the exhibition examines the discipline through works that celebrate the medium and material itself, as well as showcase the revival and innovation of traditional techniques. The works in the exhibition also illustrate a variety of glass-forming technologies beyond traditional glassblowing. Masters of Studio Glass will works from the Museum’s permanent collection and include artists such as Dale Chihuly, Benjamin Moore, Dante Marioni, and Therman Statom.
