Midwest Voices in Contemporary Glass

Midwest Voices in Contemporary Glass

The Cafesjian Art Trust Museum invited artists to participate in the Museum’s first juried exhibition of glass art from the Midwest region.

Midwest Voices in Contemporary Glass includes ten works selected from an open call to illustrate the diversity of approaches and ideas percolating in the Midwest glass scene. The jurors included Andy Schlauch, Executive Director of the CAT Museum; Alejandra Peña-Gutiérrez, Director of the Weisman Museum; and Anna Lehner, Executive Director of Foci Minnesota Center for Glass Arts. This exhibition accompanies the CAT Museum’s concurrent exhibition From Origins to Horizons: The American Studio Glass Movement, which survey the movement’s beginnings in the 1960s through today.

Artists featured in the exhibition include Erik Burt, Davin Ebanks, Emily McBride, Donna Rice, Nadine Saylor, Chuchen Song, Abegael Uffelman, Ali Van, Lila Westreich, and Emma Wood.
