In the recent past many of the newly appointed museum directors have acquired glass artworks to increase attention to their museums. Museums such as the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, the Flint Institute of Arts, The Imagine Museum, Toledo Museum of Art, the Fort Wayne Museum of Art and many more. The artworks included in this exhibition offer a vast history of the contemporary glass art movement that started in 1962.
