The SFO Museum exhibition entitled, Studio Glass: The art of Marvin Lipofsky, Richard Marquis, John Lewis, and Elin Christopherson, presents contemporary glass sculpture by four American artists whose work is the foundation of today's growing understanding of glass as a medium of expression.

Highlighting the "unique and evolving approaches to the art form" of four artists, the exhibition includes Marvin Lipofsky's sculpture from the earliest days of 1964 to later work made in Italy, Russia, and across the USA. His work is presented along side those of his notable students, Richard Marquis, John Lewis and Elin Christopherson.

If you are flying in or out of SFO during the holidays, the exhibition can be viewed from the gates at Virgin America and American Airlines. Highlights of the exhibition are available online through the SFO Museum here.
