American Glass: Masters of the Art

September 4 - October 31, 1999



Glass - this ancient material is served fresh in a touring exhibit from the Smithsonian and the U.S. Information Agency. The MMAA brings the colorful diversity of glass to Minnesota in American Glass: Masters of the Art. Chosen from thousands of artists, the thirteen represented in American Glass are truly "Masters of the Art." From the spiritual to the whimsical, from architectural to abstract, the objects in this exhibition show how American artists have embraced the medium and breathed new life into this ancient material.

American Glass: Masters of the Art was organized and curated by Lloyd E. Herman, founder of the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery. It is circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibit Service, and supported in part by the U.S. Information Agency.
