Pathfinders: Paving the Glass Revolution in the U.S.
On view through July 14, 2024
New Bedford Art Museum
New Bedford, Massachusetts

Produced in partnership with the Sandwich Glass Museum and in consultation with the New Bedford Museum of Glass, “Pathfinders: Paving the Glass Revolution in the U.S.” chronicles the impact of Dale Chihuly’s influence in the studio glass movement.

Chihuly’s founding of the Pilchuck School – a place that has nurtured and schooled a community of artists in glass art techniques for more than 50 years – along with his visionary deployment of glass in the creation of monumental environmental sculpture, cemented a new legitimacy for the medium as a vehicle for fine art. The exhibition includes leaders in the world of glass sculpture from the 1960s up to contemporary glass artists.
