"The Museum is renowned for its extensive glass collection and for being the site of the historic 1962 Toledo Workshops. Those workshops, led by Harvey Littleton at the invitation of then-Museum Director Otto Wittmann, nurtured the artists now considered pioneers of the American Studio Art Glass movement and, through extension, helped to rejuvenate studio glass in post-war Europe. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the birth of studio glass, TMA presents Color Ignited: Glass 1962-2012, an enticing "coming of age" look at the medium. International in scope, it showcases works by Toledo Workshops participants as well as by the major artists working in the medium since. The exhibition focuses on the role of color--
from the conceptual to the political to the metaphoric --
in artistic expression. More than 80 objects from private collections, galleries, other museums and TMA's own collection are shown, including works by Littleton, Dominick Labino, Marvin Lipofsky, Dale Chihuly, Dan Dailey, Judith Schaechter, Ginny Ruffner, Fritz Driesbach and Klaus Moje"--
