Susie Silbert, Curator of Contemporary Glass Art, Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, New York

How can we make sense of glass art on a grand scale? Think Chihuly at botanical gardens around the world, as one incredible example. Our favorite expert on the subject will explore what inspired artists to try new and larger work starting in the 1960s. She will survey the important artists who led the way and those continuing to innovate now. The talk will be eye-opening, and no one is more engaging on this topic than the lively Susie Silbert, who spoke at WAM in 2019. She has been the lead contemporary curator at Corning Museum of Glass for five years.

Thursday, February 18
4:30 to 5:30 pm | Dinner pick-up at WAM
