Harvey K. Littleton - Founders of American Studio Glass Exhibition at the Corning Museum of Glass

Gallery artist Harvey K. Littleton will be featured by the Corning Museum of Glass in an upcoming exhibition titled “Founders of American Studio Glass.” The exhibition runs from November 17, 2011 through January 6, 2013 in the West Bridge gallery at the Corning Museum of Glass.

About the Exhibition

This exhibition will feature vessels, sculptures, and vitreographs (prints made from glass plates) by one of the founders of the American Studio glass movement, Harvey K. Littleton. Objects will span the arc of Littleton’s career in glass from the 1960s to the 1990s. In 1962, Littleton and Dominick Labino introduced glass to studio artists at two experimental workshops at the Toledo Museum of Art, and this migration of glassblowing from the factory to the studio blossomed into what is called the American Studio glass movement. On the 50th anniversary of these workshops, this exhibition honors Littleton, born and raised in Corning, for his achievements in developing glass as a material for artistic expression, and it presents a range of his influential artworks drawn from the Museum’s collection and the artist’s personal collection.

The Corning Museum of Glass is located at:

One Museum Way
