Collectors’ Travel Network

The Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass Collectors' Travel Network is a way for members to see fabulous private collections when trips take you out of town and time permits. When you travel to different cities in North America, and even abroad, this membership benefit offers you the opportunity to see privately owned collections where pieces of art have been carefully chosen by individuals or couples for their own pleasure. They all love to share, show their collection and talk glass.  

Instructions on How to See Fabulous Private Collections (Open to AACG Members only):

Before traveling to a city in the USA, Canada or abroad, first check the complete list of cities, states and countries in which there are collections that can be visited by clicking here.  If your trip takes you to one of the locations on the zip code/city chart, call the number of the commitee member below that covers that area, or call Diane Farber (see Michigan below) who chairs the Collectors' Travel Network.  You will be given names and telephone numbers of collectors in the area to which you are traveling who have agreed to welcome you to their homes and show their collection to AACG members.

Visiting private art collections is generally not possible in the art world.  So this is a unique opportunity for AACG Members. And consider OPENING your home to AACG members who visit your city.  Call the AACG office, 214-890-0029 or e-mail admin@contempglass.org, or fill in the form below to add your name to the AACG Collectors' Travel Network List .
