Idea Furnace Retrospective


June 7 -  July 28

ARTIST HAPPY HOUR Thursday, June 20 6-8pm

This exhibition showcases artists of other mediums who have been inspired by glass. Each artist had the opportunity to execute their ideas in glass with the help of an experienced glass artist as a part of Pittsburgh Glass Center’s Idea Furnace program. The Idea Furnace is an experimental design program to connect non-glass artists with glass artists and encourage exploration in other art forms. Nearly 40 artists have participated in the program since it began in 2013.
