Lubeznik Center for the Arts Celebrates 50 Years of Studio Glass in America

« Back

Jun 07, 2012
Michigan City, IN

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the development of studio art glass in America. Lubeznik Center for the Arts in Michigan City, IN, will join with museums, galleries, art centers and other venues across the country in presenting glass demonstrations, lectures and exhibitions marking this milestone.The Center’s current exhibition Light & Flow: 50 Year Anniversary of the Studio Glass Movement features works by some of the most respected names in art glass, including Stephen Powell, the James Renwick Alliance’s 2012 Distinguished Educator Award honoree. The history of American studio glass art began with two glass workshops held at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1962. The workshops were taught by Harvey K. Littleton, who, along with scientist Dominick Labino, introduced a small furnace built for glass working that made it possible for individual artists to work in independent studios. Since 1962, the art of glass has been incorporated into art education, museums, personal collections and many indoor and outdoor installations.
