On View
Oct 22, 2005–Dec 31, 2005
Main Level, Contemporary Gallery

Glass as a sculptural medium has an impressive range of creative potential. Eye, Form, Symbol, an exhibition drawn from Jon and Judith Liebman's extensive collection of contemporary sculpture in glass, features pieces that attract the eye with radiant surfaces or jewel-like appeal; emphasize bold sculptural forms with worked surfaces, brilliant color, and unions with solid materials; and captivate the imagination with symbolic meaning.

Exhibition supported in part by the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass.

This exhibition profiled more than thirty internationally renowned glass artists. Their techniques for handling this ancient medium result in contemporary sculptures of unprecedented brilliance and tremendous breadth of artistic expression.
