WATCH CONTEMPORARY GLASS HISTORY IN THE MAKING!
The Museum’s Visiting Artist Residency Program hosts internationally-known and emerging artists in our world-class Hot Shop to create new works in glass with our Hot Shop Team. Offering a diverse mixture of culture, style, focus and expertise, these artists create a sense of excitement and wonder as they experiment and explore new directions in their art that may not be possible in their own studios. Residencies range in length from single day visits—including every Friday for our Hot Lunch Program—to multiple weeks. One piece created during the residency is selected for inclusion in the Museum's collection. Many of our Visiting Artists present a Conversation with the Artist lecture and slide presentation on the final day of their residency.
In the summer, MOG presents the Visiting Artist Summer Series, a partnership with Pilchuck Glass School, that brings artists from around the world to the Hot Shop. A different artist is featured each week from mid-June through Labor Day weekend.
