Museum of Glass (MOG) is celebrating its third annual Fire & Ice Festival. From 15 November to 31 December, MOG will host a variety of Fire & Ice themed activities, performances, and demonstrations.
In addition to the festivities, the Museum will host a Giving Tree this season, selecting Family Renewal Shelter (FRS) as its recipient organization. FRS is dedicated to bringing healing hope and new life to victims of domestic violence, and they have identified the items of greatest need for the families they serve. In addition to viewing the glass ornaments and holiday decorations on MOG’s tree, visitors will have the chance to select a tag which identifies an item needed for a child, age 6 months to 15 years, or for their moms. Admission is free for visitors who select a tag and bring back the unwrapped gift for an FRS recipient. The Giving Tree will run from Wednesday, 22 November to Sunday, 17 December.
During the festival, visitors will be able to see some of the Museum’s visiting artists at work, such as glass sculptor Nancy Callan, Beth Lipman with her hand-sculpted glass compositions, Jasen Johnsen with his substantial glass sculpting skills, and David Walters and his signature painted enamel on glass.
The Festival includes a series of activities ranging from music and sketching, to the possibility of making glass bowls and dishes and Christmas decorations, of course.
