Contemporary Artists Breathe New Life Into Centuries-Old Venetian Glassmaking Techniques

Boca Raton Museum of Art

Making its U.S. premier, Glasstress Boca Raton 2021 is a progressive new exhibit at the Boca Raton Museum of Art featuring works of glass from over 30 of the world’s foremost artists. For many of these artists, Glasstress represents their first time working in this challenging medium. The exhibit explores timely subjects including human rights, climate change, racial justice, gender issues and politics. Glasstress Boca Raton 2021 is the highly-anticipated sequel to the museum’s 2017 Glasstress exhibit. A collective of international artists were invited by Adriano Berengo to work alongside his master glassmaking artisans at his eponymous Berengo Studio on the island of Murano in the Venetian lagoon.  More in link.
