Museum of Glass Collection Travels to Sunderland, England

By Alex Carr, Digital Media Coordinator

A selection of artwork from the Museum of Glass (MOG) collection has traveled across the pond to National Glass Centre (NGC) in Sunderland, England.

This partnership began in 2014, when a representative from National Glass Centre traveled to Tacoma, WA, to meet the Museum of Glass curatorial team. Following this meeting, the Museum of Glass mascot, Green Guy, had the opportunity to visit Sunderland, where he explored the artwork on display at NGC!

Since then, Seattle-based artist and National Glass Centre staff member Paul Marioni has worked with both institutions to select a variety of pieces from the MOG collection to travel to Sunderland.

The Museum of Glass collection is now on display at National Glass Centre through August 31, 2016.
