"Lovers of beautiful gl ass 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 Stat e University School of Art\, have each developed new\, highly individual an d divergent techniques that push the boundaries of glass sculpture."
- Dorothy Shinn\, Akron Beacon Journal


The Akron Art Museu m joins dozens of Ohio museums and galleries in celebrating the 50th annive rsary of the studio glass movement in the United States\, which began with the Toledo Glass Workshops in 1962. Featuring artists at the forefront of c ontemporary glassmaking\, New Artifacts: Works by Brent Kee Young and S ungsoo Kim pays tribute to the pioneering spirit of the movement’s fou nders. Works by Cleveland Institute of Art professor and department head Yo ung are juxtaposed with the works of Kim\, an adjunct professor at Clevelan d Institute of Art and Kent State University. Each has developed diverging and highly personal techniques that expand our understanding of the possibi lities for glass.
