Artist Donations to the 2019 Glass Auction

We invite you to participate in our 20th annual Glass Auction and Gala fundraiser, which is being held this year on Saturday, September 14.

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 made possible only through freedom. That is why an auction devoted to glass art is such an essential source of our funding. 100% of the proceeds go directly to our education initiatives, including our Young Heroes Outreach program, which teaches young people throughout our region that they have the ability to make a difference in their school, their community, and beyond.

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, 115 or 126.
