The Creative Glass Center of America at WheatonArts and the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass bring you GlassWeekend, an International Symposium and Exhibition of Contemporary Glass. Since 1985, GlassWeekend, a biennial event, has brought together the world’s leading glass artists, collectors, galleries, and museum curators for a three-day weekend of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on glassmaking, artists, demonstrations and social events.
GlassWeekend is held at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, home of the Creative Glass Center of America and the Museum of American Glass. WheatonArts is located 45 minutes from both Philadelphia and Atlantic City, and less than three hours from New York City and Washington, D.C.
The proceeds of GlassWeekend benefit the Creative Glass Center of America Fellowship Program, providing working fellowships to ten individual artists from around the world each year. Additionally, as the event’s co-presenter, the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass dedicates portions of the proceeds to help fund Museum exhibitions that further the development and appreciation of art made from glass.
