The American Studio Glass Movement that emerged from two experimental glass workshops at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) in 1962 has transformed the art world by making glass a popular and respected artistic medium.

The Museum will celebrate the 50th anniversary of this historic moment with an array of activities, which include a major glass exhibition and hosting the 2012 Glass Art Society Conference.

The Museum will also be reinstalling and reinterpreting its glass collection at the Glass Pavilion® in anticipation of the upcoming anniversary.

The Museum is located at 2445 Monroe Street at Scottwood Avenue, just west of the downtown business district and one block off I-75 with exit designations posted. For general information, visitors can call 419-255-8000 or 800-644-6862, or visit
