  • For Pride Month 2017, the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia presented the nation’s first museum exhibition of Studio Glass works produced exclusively by artists in the LGBTQ+ community. Now, the National Liberty Museum is partnering with Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Washington, to share this exhibition with a broader audience and showcase the diverse subjects, methods, and styles explored by LGBTQ+ glass artists. Many of the selected works were created for this exhibition, and the result is a three-dimensional meditation on queer experience that is as multifaceted as the community from which it comes. The exhibition includes works by Sabrina Knowles and Jenny Pohlman, Joseph Cavalieri, Pearl Dick, Kim Harty, and Jeff Zimmer, along with sixteen others.
