A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE CORNING MUSEUM OF GLASS
AND THE ROBERT M. MINKOFF FOUNDATION
Offering talented high-school-student artists from underserved communities the opportunity to experience glass art at a new level.
The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass: July 24 - 31, 2016.
A week-long program at The Corning Museum of Glass for the top students in at-risk glass art programs around the United States. The outreach program includes airfare, lodgings, and meals for the duration. The itinerary blends instruction, touring the collections with curators, a visit to the Rakow Research Library, a meeting with a prominent collector, a discussion about preparing an artist's portfolio, and a presentation on applying to college with a focus on glassblowing.
Hot Glass Inc. is pleased to announce that they have been awarded a scholarship to participate in the Expanding Horizons workshop at the Corning Museum of Glass in late July. Joel Ryser, Executive Director, and Aaron Fischer, a student, were awarded a week long, all expense paid glass art experience with six other students from Non-Profit glass programs around the country who work with underserved youth. They will encounter new opportunities and learn more about a career as a glass artist and also have the opportunity to get to know other budding artists from across the country in this unique opportunity.
