A sequel to the NBMAA’s popular 2008 glass exhibition, Glass Today: 21st-Century Innovations, celebrates glass as a material for contemporary art—sculpture, installation, video and even painting and printmaking.
This group exhibition, curated by Assistant Curator Anna Rogulina, brings together over 80 works by 66 artists united by their ability to manipulate the properties and potentialities of the medium. Three themes—Nature & Landscape; Form & Color; and Narrative & Symbol—serve as loose connective tissue between the sheer diversity of techniques, aesthetics and conceptual goals achieved by each of the exhibiting artists.
We invite you to take advantage of the many exciting programs happening in conjunction with this exhibition. Please consult our website nbmaa.org, calendar and program listings in this newsletter for more information about lectures, trips, and studio classes offered this summer!
Special funding has been provided by the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass, the Bailey Family Fund for Special Exhibitions, and the Kathryn Cox Endowment Fund for Special Exhibitions.
