Our Glass Art Experts

The glass art displayed at the National Liberty Museum draws much interest from our visitors.

Some of our visitors are experiencing glass art for the first time, and are intrigued by this unique, contemporary, and complex art form.  Others are long-time glass art lovers, including those who are serious glass art collectors themselves.  Additionally, there is always great interest in the way glass art is used in context with liberty, heroism and civic responsibility, and history through art.

To enhance your interaction with our glass art collection, our Glass Art Department has established a “Glass Access” Center in the same gallery that houses our Techniques Exhibit. We invite you to stop in during your visit and ask us any questions you have.
