Glass Affair

Glass bongs don’t classify as sculptures, but after seeing “A Glass Perspective,” presented by Art Glass Phoenix and held in conjunction with Arizona SciTech festival, visitors might be left feeling a little lightheaded by the display of glass sculptures created by eight Valley-based artists.

While most of these artists are professionals, some nationally recognized, two are “everyday Joes,” says glass artist and event organizer Marko Boyer. One’s a Phoenix firefighter; another works for a trolley company. “But their works are phenomenal.”

Upwards of two dozen pieces will showcase traditional leaded, fused and blown glass, plus hybrid forms of these styles.

“It’s completely world-class,” Boyer adds. “We’re just trying to get people to be a little more open-minded to other types of art than they normally would be.”
