THE GLASS AGE: TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD

The United Nations has designated 2022 as the
“International Year of Glass”.

Our theme for 2022 is “The Glass Age: Transforming our World” which highlights the history, the inventions and the wonders that glass has to offer through inspiring and uplifting creations by contemporary artists.

We invite you to join us as we celebrate with peers around the world how glass continues to transform our society through artistic endeavors, technology and the sciences

ABOUT THE GLASS AGE:

TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD

Glass has extended our vision; not just down to the invisible world of cells and microbes, or the global connectivity of our smart phones, but all the way back to the early days of the universe. Glass started out as trinkets and empty vessels. A few thousand years later, it has become our time machine as we explore the far reaches of our cosmos to understand our past and providing opportunities to create our future.

Imagine Museum features the inspiring, uplifting, and educational characteristics of contemporary glass art through the collection of the Trish Joy Foundation.

The museum showcases the spirit of experimentation, innovation and historic relevance from the mid-20th century American Studio Glass Movement to the current international influence and exchange of artists from around the world.
