DESCRIPTION

This year marks the Golden Jubilee of the American Studio Glass art movement. Fifty years ago, in 1962, the seminal workshops that sparked it took place at the Toledo Museum of Art. Students from these first workshops then went on to form glass programs at universities around the country. Glass education at CCA was founded by one of these pioneers, Martin Lipofsky, in 1967. CCA has been an integral part of the movement for decades, educating many of the artists who have risen to prominence since.
