Reflections: Celebrating 50 Years of the Studio Glass Movement

October 20, 2012January 27, 2013

To celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the studio glass movement, the Fine Arts Museums will present a small-focus exhibition of works by some of the medium’s pioneering artists, drawn from the collection of George and Dorothy Saxe and installed along the corridor adjacent to the Saxe Gallery for contemporary craft arts. To show both the artists’ personal evolutions and the evolution of the movement, the six-case installation will display an early and a late work each by Harvey Littleton, Dominick Labino, Dale Chihuly, William Morris, Thomas Patti, and Mark Peiser.

Location 

Organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
