Glass Act at Boca Museum of Art

The Boca Museum of Art at Mizner Park announces “GLASS ACT: THE CONTEMPORARY STUDIO GLASS MOVEMENT TURNS 50″.  The installation will run from March 27 through October 14th.

This survey of contemporary studio glass will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Studio Glass Movement in America.  Studio glass describes one-of-a-kind fine art glass pieces made in individual studios rather than glass factories.  This movement started in the early 1960s, when Harvey Littleton – today considered the father of the studio glass movement – built his own glass-making furnaces in a freestanding studio.
