Celebrate the Glass City
The Arts Commission hosted the 2022 Momentum Festival along the Maumee riverfront on September 15, 16, and 17, 2022. This year's festival was a celebration of the International Year of Glass in the Glass City itself. You can continue to enjoy the Momentum | Intersection Exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion through October 16, 2022.
If you're interested in other opportunities to celebrate the International Year of Glass, The Libbey House Foundation is sponsoring a lecture series throughout 2022 that will highlight the rich history that has made Toledo “The Glass City.” Each of the planned lectures will focus on a different aspect of glass in Toledo.
Speakers will include historians, glass industry executives, researchers, curators, and collectors. The series will focus on Toledo’s unique role in fostering the development of both industrial glass and art glass. The series is grouped into three themes: The Roots of Toledo Glass, Toledo Glass Innovation, and Toledo Glass and American Aesthetics. The Roots of Toledo Glass
