The Sixth Decade of UW Glass

The Sixth Decade of UW Glass

Glass Madison: The Sixth Decade of UW Glass surveys work from the last ten years of the UW Glass Lab, reflecting the priorities and interests of today’s emerging artists working with glass and expanded glass processes. These artists: draw from a plurality of glass histories that precede, include, and succeed American Studio Glass; elevate lesser-known narratives of Harvey Littleton’s legacy, and reflect a more holistic landscape of voices that speak through this material today. Glass Madison: The Sixth Decade of UW Glass contributes to the articulation of this unnamed moment in contemporary practice.
