Playing with Fire: Artists of the California Studio Glass Movement at the Oakland Museum

Playing with Fire: Artists of the California Studio Glass Movement
October 26, 2012–March 24, 2013
OMCA is one of more than 120 museums nationwide to mark the 50th anniversary of the studio art-glass movement in the United States. Featuring 32 works on view representing 22 artists in the Gallery of California Art, the exhibition Playing with Fire: Artists of the California Studio Glass Movement celebrates California's involvement in, and impact on, this movement that was brought to the Golden State by Marvin Lipofsky, who started the glass programs at California College of Arts and Crafts and UC Berkeley, and by Robert Fritz, who established the program at San Jose State University. Showcasing pioneer California glass artists, such as Richard Marquis, Jay Musler, Randy Strong, and Mary White, alongside the next generation of California glass artists including Oben Abright and Jaime Guerrero, the exhibition reinforces the Bay Area's prominence as a hotbed for the studio art-glass movement.
