- Hawaiian dishes at the Museum cafe, Choripan
- A drawing for a Hawaiian vacation (visitors who make a $10 donation to Museum of Glass at the front desk in December will be entered into a drawing for a holiday on the island of Maui! The drawing will be held on March 28, 2015. Participants do not need to be present to win)
- Fire dancers on the main plaza, December 31 at 4 pm
GET WARM AND GIVE BACK
December 20 - 21, 2015
In the spirit of giving back this holiday season, Museum of Glass invites you to warm up by our fire in exchange for donating items of clothing to keep those less fortunate warm too.
During the weekend of December 20 and 21, enjoy a stress-free holiday visit to MOG with free parking (no need to display a ticket, simply park and enter MOG!) and half-price admission with a donation of a new hat, scarf, pair of gloves or socks at the front desk (50% discount per person, per item donated). Museum members can also enjoy a double-discount on their entire purchase in the MOG Store!
All items donated will be displayed on a Giving Tree in the Grand Hall during the weekend, then donated to Tacoma Rescue Mission.
MUSIC AT MOG
Featuring Kareem Kandi, January 4, 2015, 11 am to 12 pm
The first Sunday Music at MOG debuts with the Kareem Kandi Band January 4, 2014. The music series will be presented on the first Sundays of the month and will feature live intimate performances from musicians in the Grand Hall. Brunch and beverages will be available for purchase from Choripan, the Museum Café, during the performances.
A native of the Pacific Northwest, Kareem Kandi will bring his classic style to the Museum. A performer, composer, and educator, Kandi grew up in the local jazz music scene and formed the Kareem Kandi band in 1996. Since then, Kandi and his band has won multiple awards in the Weekly Volcano for Best Jazz Group and has performed with many other artists. If not touring with his band, Kandi can be caught instructing at Tacoma School of the Arts, Pierce College, and Ted Brown Music or performing as a sideman for The Paperboys.
The Kareem Kandi Band’s performance will be the first of the series sponsored by The Klorfine Foundation and KPLU-FM. Admission for these events will be $18, which includes all-day museum admission. Students and MOG members are welcome and free of charge.
