PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: OCTOBER 25, 2010 www.glassart.org/calls_for_conf_proposals.html
The Glass Art Society Board of Directors is requesting proposals for lectures, demonstrations, lec-mo's and panels for the Toledo, Ohio conference relating to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Studio Glass "Roots" in America.
In recognition of the Toledo Museum of Art's role as the cradle of the American Studio Glass Movement, GAS will be holding its 2012 conference in Toledo, Ohio. In 1962, two experimental glass workshops held at the Museum proved that glass was a medium suitable for the expression of artistic ideas in a studio environment. They launched a movement that was propelled by an unprecedented collective enthusiasm and since has turned into an international phenomenon that continues to inspire experimentation. Toledo, America's Glass City, is welcoming again artists from around the world to celebrate the achievements of the past and to explore the seemingly endless possibilities of glass. Proposal submissions should recognize this historic year for studio glass, while reflecting the innovative spirit, diverse viewpoints, and current concerns of the Glass Art Society community at large.
