Founders of American Studio Glass: Harvey K. Littleton


West Bridge
November 17, 2011 to January 6, 2013

In celebration of the 50th anniversary, in 2012, of the “birth” of the American Studio Glass movement, this exhibition featured works by one of the founders of the movement, Harvey K. Littleton. The objects on display — 19 vessels and sculptures and five vitreographs (prints made from glass plates) — spanned the arc of Littleton’s career in glass from the 1960s through the 1980s.

Works were drawn both from the Museum’s collection and the artist’s personal collection. Founders of American Studio Glass: Harvey K. Littleton recognized Littleton, born and raised in Corning, for his achievements in developing glass as a material for artistic expression. It was the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work at the Museum.
