The Corning Museum of Glass is pleased to announce its 61st Annual Seminar on Glass, a two-day program of online sessions that complements the special exhibition Dig Deeper: Discovering an Ancient Glass Workshop.
The program will explore the ways archaeologists study glass and glassmaking in the ancient world, with particular focus on the site of Jalame in modern Israel. Presenters will share recent discoveries of ancient glass workshops, new ways of understanding the relationship between the ancient and contemporary worlds, and the process of immersing museum visitors in an exhibition about archaeological discovery.
The two-day program will include an international roster of keynote speakers, papers, and moderated panels. In between sessions, registrants will enjoy virtual tours, glassblowing demonstrations, and opportunities to network with colleagues in Community Rooms.
All are welcome to register for the free two-day online seminar.
