GlassAccess Gallery           Now on display: Destined for the Stars  

Located on the Lower Level of the National Liberty Museum, the GlassAccess Gallery at NLM compliments the Museum’s permanent glass collection with revolving exhibits focusing on current themes. GlassAccess hosts several exhibitions throughout the year featuring both local and international contemporary glass.

This space was created to mirror the Museum’s mission and inspire visitors to think about liberty as an ongoing human quest that we all share. These cutting-edge exhibits enhance one’s understanding of the contemporary glass art movement and the freedom of expression through the medium of glass.
