Global Glass: A Survey of Form and Function Opening Reception

Join us for an evening of beauty and community. Visit our new exhibition, Global Glass (June 23 – October 14, 2018) and enjoy refreshments, conversation, and a talk with the Curator.

Curator Don Desmett will focus on some specific works in the exhibition as examples of the international movement in glass arts from the 1960s to the present, and touch on techniques used by the artists and questions about "beauty" in art. Don was Founding Director of Exhibitions for the Richmond Center for Visual Arts at Western Michigan University from 2006-2016, and Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts from 2000-2004.
