The Art of Glass: Masterworks from the Toledo Museum of Art

Opens August 27, 2006

Toledo: After more than three years off view, the Toledo Museum of Art’s world renowned glass collection re-emerges on August 27, 2006, in conjunction with the public inauguration of the Museum's newly built Glass Pavilion. The Glass Pavilion’s premier exhibition, The Art of Glass: Masterworks from the Toledo Museum of Art, traces the history of glass as an artistic medium, as represented by more than 200 dazzling masterpieces from the TMA collection. 

“Today the TMA glass collection is one of the most comprehensive and historically significant collections dedicated to the medium in the world, and its creation and growth are as unique as the Museum itself,” TMA Curator of Glass Dr. Jutta-Annette Page said. “The Art of Glass represents the highlights of our collection, from beloved favorites to new acquisitions that are on view for the first time.”

Exhibition Highlights
The Art of Glass features works of glass art from ancient to contemporary times, including an ancient gilded Islamic Mosque Lamp from Egypt, a newly acquired French Louis XIV medallion, the dazzling American cut-glass Libbey Punch Bowl, the colorful Vitrana by Toledo artist Dominick Labino, and a crystal chandelier by Dale Chihuly.

Illustrated Publication
The exhibition is accompanied by the fully illustrated 348-page color catalogue, The Art of Glass, written by Dr. Page and published by TMA in association with D
