The Museum of Glass: International Center for Contemporary Art is dedicated to the presentation and interpretation of contemporary art with a sustained concentration on the medium of glass. The museum houses 13,000 square feet of gallery space, outdoor exhibition space, a 180-seat theater, an experimental studio for educational programs, a Hot Shop Amphitheater and a museum store and cafe, as well as a serene rooftop plaza with panoramic views of the city and waterfront.

The museum exhibition schedule includes works by internationally known artists, who illuminate trends in contemporary art. The exhibition program offers artists and audiences the opportunity to experiment with and experience a full range of media in the visual arts. Clear, expert commentary in the form of interpretive text panels, docent programs, guided tours and other programs ensure a museum experience that is meaningful and engaging to visitors.

The education program at the Museum of Glass creates an energetic, enriching environment that stimulates discussion and individual expression, resulting in a greater understanding of contemporary art. The multifaceted and innovative programming is designed to engage people of all ages and backgrounds, particularly youth, in a meaningful, relevant dialogue about art. In the Education Studio and Gallery, students participate in interactive and creative hands-on learning activities, taught by both visual and performing artists. Create your own art. The Studio is designed as a drop-in, interactive learning space with techniques and themes inspired by the exhibitions.

Feel the heat as you watch art come alive. Every day, artists demonstrate the intriguing process of creating works of art from molten glass on the amphitheater stage, giving visitors a birds-eye view of their activities.
