Public Art in Glass


Public Art in Glass explores the practice and creative process of four award winning Canadian glass artists who focus on public art projects. Including works by Warren Carther, Sarah Hall, Robert Jekyll, and Michèle Lapointe, this exhibition demonstrates the development of public glass art from its beginnings in stained glass to contemporary applications that include solar cells, colours, and a wide range of additional materials. Art has been used in the public sphere for centuries to embellish, to commemorate people and events of historical importance, to educate, to assert power. Today, public art often focuses on local community values where it transforms the surrounding landscape to highlight issues and questions of the moment.
The catalogue features essays by Executive Director and Chief Curator, Denis Longchamps, as well as Dr. Shirley Ann Brown and Kathy Kranias that explore the history of public glass art projects from their early Canadian beginnings in Cathedrals to contemporary projects that are part of this exhibition.
