Bright Future: New Designs in Glass

Mesh Vases, Werner Aisslinger & CIAV MeisenthalThis exhibition of sculpture, tableware, and lighting designs by American and international artists and firms will explore issues of sustainability, the manipulation of light, and the contrast of ancient and modern influences in contemporary glass. The signature qualities of glass—its flexibility, clarity, complex cultural history, and ability to magnify and direct light—will all be at play in the works exhibited. The exhibition, which is guest curated by Sarah Archer, chief curator at the Philadelphia Art Alliance, is timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the development of studio art glass in America.

Open through May 5, 2012
Tuesday–Saturday, 11 AM–6 PM
