Call for Presentation Proposals for the Glass Art Society 2012 Toledo,
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Studio Glass “Roots” in America,
the Glass Art Society’s 42nd annual conference takes place in Toledo,
Ohio, June 13-16, 2012.
PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: OCTOBER 25, 2010
The Glass Art Society Board of Directors is requesting proposals for
lectures, demonstrations, lec-mo’s and panels for the Toledo, Ohio
conference relating to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Studio
Glass “Roots” in America.
In recognition of the Toledo Museum of Art’s role as the cradle of
the American Studio Glass Movement, GAS will be holding its 2012 conference
in Toledo, Ohio. In 1962, two experimental glass workshops held at
the Museum proved that glass was a medium suitable for the expression
of artistic ideas in a studio environment. They launched a movement
that was propelled by an unprecedented collective enthusiasm and since
has turned into an international phenomenon that continues to inspire
experimentation. Toledo, America’s Glass City, is welcoming again artists
from around the world to celebrate the achievements of the past and
to explore the seemingly endless possibilities of glass. Proposal submissions
should recognize this historic year for studio glass, while reflecting
the innovative spirit, diverse viewpoints, and current concerns of
the Glass Art Society community at large.
