Two glass exhibitions open Saturday, March 5, and will be enlivened by ten days of glassmaking demonstrations beginning in late April at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, always admission free. Learn more via this press release.
The two exhibitions this spring, Art Deco Glass from the Huchthausen Collection and Molten: 30 Years of American Glass from the Woodson Art Museum’s collection, coincide with and celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Studio Glass movement and the United Nations International Year of Glass 2022.
Glowing, molten glass will be transformed into sparkling objects throughout the narrated glassmaking demonstrations, April 29-May 8, in the Corning Museum of Glass Mobile Hot Shop, a visually spectacular and fully functioning glassmaking studio on wheels converted from a semitrailer, that will set up shop on the Woodson Art Museum’s campus.
Experience the 45th annual Student Art Exhibition and sculpture garden while the upcoming exhibitions are being prepared in other galleries during this installation week. Art Park, the Museum’s interactive gallery, remains open while upcoming exhibition themes are being infused into this space, too. View and the wire-bird “murmuration” flock created collaboratively during San Francisco-based sculptor Tom Hill’s fall 2021 residency, and installed as a single sculptural work at the Museum.
