New Exhibition at Corning

Just found out I’ll be in this exhibition, more info to come:

From advertisements for glass eyes to patents for preserving the dead in glass; from glasshouse dollars to drawings by world-famous artists such as Thomas Benton, Jean Cocteau, Salvador Dalí, Giorgio de Chirico, Eric Gill, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Grant Wood: these rarely seen wonders are some of the curious and surprising objects from The Rakow Research Library of The Corning Museum of Glass. Artists, researchers, authors, and glass enthusiasts of all kinds use the Rakow Library’s holdings to learn more about glass, which often leads to voyages of discovery in unexpected directions. Discover how the rare collections and curiosities in the Rakow Library have inspired others and how they can inspire you.

Curious and Curiouser: Surprising Finds from the Rakow Library is curated by Rebecca Hopman, Outreach Librarian, with curatorial advisement provided by Karol Wight.
