Silica Valley explores the interplay between technology and human creativity in an age when tech is both so integrated into our lives as to go unnoticed, but also threatening in its growing presence. The show’s title is a play on Silicon Valley, the California technology hub that is home to many of the top computing and media companies, and silica, a compound key in the production of glass. This connection demonstrates that the components of technology and art are not so separate and can mesh in interesting new ways, as shown by the various fusions created by the artists in their works.
The Hodge Gallery at Pittsburgh Glass Center presents critically acclaimed contemporary glass art exhibitions throughout the year. A wide range of work in glass is showcased from student exhibitions to cutting edge installations by established artists that incorporate light, sound and time-based elements. With these exhibitions, PGC is expanding the perception of glass from purely functional item to the realm of sculpture, installation and expression.
Since 2002, hundreds of artists from the region and around the world have been showcased in the Emma Clyde Hodge Gallery at PGC. Look back to see some of the amazing artwork that was presented.
