Lectures & Seminars

Hear from renowned artists, historians and glass experts in our public lectures and seminars. We offer a variety of artist presentations year-round, from free public Meet the Artist lectures in the Museum's Auditorium, to more informal evening presentations by artists teaching and working at The Studio. Each year, since 1961, the Museum has offered an Annual Seminar on Glass: a multi-day event with lectures by historians and experts from around the world.
