Artist Donations to the 2018 Glass Auction

We invite you to participate in our 19th annual Glass Auction and Gala fundraiser, which is being held this year on Saturday, October 6.

Glass 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.

We would be extremely grateful if you would provide a piece to include in our Glass Auction this year. If you have any questions, feel free to email us or call us at 215-925-2800 ext. 117 or 115.

Here’s a sample of the artwork that will be featured in this year’s auction – items not to scale.
