GLASS BREAK: THE EARLY DAYS

Museum of Glass, 1801 Dock St., Tacoma
Glass Break is the new mid-day series of conversations with artists and thinkers, giving insights into the works of art on view at Museum of Glass. Each 30-minute conversation will look at the specific processes used by Albert Paley, Michael Taylor and Dale Chihuly. Bring your own food, or grab a bite from the Museum café. Soft drinks, water and cookies provided. Admission $5. Free for MOG members. The March 29 conversation will examine how glass became so popular in the Pacific Northwest and how first-generation studio glass artists like Chihuly set in motion the growth of glass art. The talk features glass artist, former Chihuly gaffer and 1978 Pilchuck student, Richard Royal. It will look at the collaborative nature of Chihuly’s artistic approach and continual experimentation, as well as, the changes the Pilchuck Glass School fostered and the ever-growing use of this medium within the art world today.
