GLASSTASTIC
On view through June 13, 2021 and Online
Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC)

Have you heard of Sheila and Neil, “the first non-flightless snails in the world?” How about a snoogle, kelpie, pegamallow, or preying beetis? Maybe you’re familiar with the candy corn creature that “helps foster kids find their forever home with his tiny little brain and his HUGE heart?”

Each of these wonderful, whimsical creatures—and many more—will appear on March 18, when the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) unveils the 2021 incarnation of GLASSTASTIC, a popular biennial collaboration between K-6 students and professional glass artists from throughout New England. A total of 27 glass sculptures will be on display at BMAC from March 18 through June 13, alongside a digital gallery of the nearly 800 drawings that were submitted by children from all across the United States. A reception for GLASSTASTIC and BMAC’s other spring exhibits will take place later this year.
