The vibrant world of glass art

The Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington is different than any other art museum I have been to, with its life-size, glistening glass sculptures. I went through the sculpture exhibits but also watched a live glass blowing demonstration done by artist Alexandra Cannon. It was fascinating to see the full process, right in front of me. I’m looking forward to one day going to more glass art museums around the country so I can add on to this wonderful experience!
