Glass: Art. Beauty. Design.

Opening June 10, 2023

Transparent or opaque, fragile yet impervious, glass has inspired artists and designers, stimulated scientists and engineers, and captivated collectors with its beauty and practicality. Hillwood founder Marjorie Merriweather Post was no exception, and she amassed over 1,600 pieces of glass, created in the 17th-20th centuries in Western Europe, Russia, and the United States. This special exhibition will highlight this lesser-known aspect of Hillwood’s collection, featuring a range of styles and techniques, while placing the historic creations in dialogue with astounding contemporary artworks. Featuring more than 300 items, ranging from the 2nd century to today, the exhibition will demonstrate the innovation and talent of artists and designers throughout the world working with the challenging medium of glass and why the material has continued to intrigue and inspire. See glass in a new light through the finest examples of vases, chandeliers, drinkware, sculpture, and more.
