A Day in the Life:

The answers are mesmerizing.

New for 2019 we have opened a portal into the life of the participating artists.

Each artist will be providing an insight into their life as an artist. The thoughts provided will be posted on the website celebrating this extraordinary event at www.Glass47.com. Visit this site as well to see an exciting preview of the masterworks on display during the Glass International.

Once again, we hope you honor us by participating in the public’s choice of best in show by voting for your favorite artist. This event happens Saturday night when the general public will have a chance to experience the 47th. The artist chosen during the event will be included in a collection of work that will be on display for the Summer of Glass at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Fort Wayne, Indiana. 25 artists in total will be chosen for this exhibition. We hope you can join us for this unforgettable and
exciting glass weekend!
