53rd Annual Seminar on Glass

October 17 - 18, 2014
53rd Annual Seminar on Glass

Annual Seminar on Glass Schedule, Presenters and Registration

This year's Annual Seminar on Glass focuses on the life, works, and legacy of the master French artist and designer, René Lalique.

Seminar will feature lectures and live demonstrations focused around the topics represented in the Museum's 2014 major exhibitions, René Lalique: Enchanted by Glass and Designing for a New Century: Works on Paper by Lalique and his Contemporaries, May 17, 2014 — December 4, 2015. These unique exhibitions will bring together over 200 objects, jewelry, production molds, period photographs, trade catalogs, and design drawings by René Lalique (French, 1860 — 1945) and his contemporaries, dating from about 1893 to Lalique’s death in 1945. The exhibitions will explore how Lalique’s aesthetic choices in his designs informed the styles of Art Nouveau and Art Deco in France and how the objects that he created have become iconic reflections of these periods.

Seminar speakers include: Gail Bardhan, Dr. Lennart Booij, Regan Brumagen, Véronique Brumm, Nicholas Dawes, Kelley Elliott, Elizabeth Everton, Rachel Delphia, Christie Mayer Lefkowith, Amie McNeel, Dr. Stefanie Walker, and Dr. Karol Wright.
