Pouring Molten Glass

”Down in southern New Jersey they make glass. By day and by night, the fires burn on in Millville.”

Carl Sandburg, 1904

 
The fires still burn here at WheatonArts! A national cultural treasure, WheatonArts is located on 45 wooded acres in southern New Jersey. WheatonArts is home to the Museum of American Glass, an international Creative Glass Fellowship Program, the largest Folklife program in the Garden State, a Hot Glass Studio, several traditional Craft Studios, Museum Stores, a 9,000 sq. ft. Event Center, Café, Nature Trail, and a beautiful pond-side picnic grove – a true Pineland Sanctuary!

In addition to glassblowing and artist demonstrations, WheatonArts features special exhibitions, programs, workshops, performances, and several weekend festivals (including the award-winning Festival of Fine Craft) throughout the year.
