> DESCRIPTION

"Lovers of beautiful glass sculpture will be in for a treat over the next six months, because the Akron Art Museum is showing works by two outstanding artists.

Brent Kee Young, who teaches at the Cleveland Institute of Art, and Sungsoo Kim, who teaches at Kent State University School of Art, have each developed new, highly individual and divergent techniques that push the boundaries of glass sculpture."
- Dorothy Shinn, Akron Beacon Journal

The Akron Art Museum joins dozens of Ohio museums and galleries in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the studio glass movement in the United States, which began with the Toledo Glass Workshops in 1962. Featuring artists at the forefront of contemporary glassmaking, New Artifacts: Works by Brent Kee Young and Sungsoo Kim pays tribute to the pioneering spirit of the movement’s founders. Works by Cleveland Institute of Art professor and department head Young are juxtaposed with the works of Kim, an adjunct professor at Cleveland Institute of Art and Kent State University. Each has developed diverging and highly personal techniques that expand our understanding of the possibilities for glass.
