Artist Donations to the 2017 Glass Auction

We invite you to participate in our 18th annual Glass Auction and Gala fundraiser, which is being held this year on Saturday, October 7.

Silent Auction of 2016 Auction GalsGlass artwork, from artists like you, is central to the Museum’s identity. We use glass art throughout the Museum, and in our outreach programs as well, to inspire dialogue around key issues relating to liberty and the power of self-expression through art. That is why an auction devoted to glass art is an essential source of our funding.  Our Tours and Workshops for Youth, Teacher Professional Development Workshops, Diversity and Inclusion Training, and the year-long Young Heroes Outreach Program are all funded through our annual Glass Auction & Gala.
