The display of glass art at the National Liberty Museum plays an integral role in the Museum’s educational mission. Glass is the prism through which we converse with visitors about the role we each play in safeguarding our liberty, as well as the connection between freedom and creativity.
The Museum displays glass art both in its permanent exhibits and through rotating exhibits in our GlassAccess Gallery. We also present an exhibit of Glass Techniques to show visitors the many different ways artists work with the medium of glass.
The National Liberty Museum’s support of glass art positions our institution as a unique venue to celebrate and discuss issues relevant to the international glass community. That makes it an important platform for glass collectors and artists alike. It’s also an inspiration for new collectors who discover this art form while visiting the Museum.
Please use the side navigation bar to learn about all of our activities related to glass, including our annual Glass Auction & Gala, our most important fundraiser of the year.
