International Year of Glass 2022

2022 is the International Year of Glass AND the 60th Anniversary of American Studio Glass Movement

The United Nations has declared 2022 as the International Year of Glass (#IYOG2022) with programming occurring worldwide to celebrate all aspects of glass: studio and public art glass, architecture, history, technology, industry, and science. AACG, a member of the IYOG2022 International Steering Committee, is tasked, along with The American Ceramic Society (ACerS), with leading promotion efforts around the art component of this global initiative. View AACG's IYOG2022 page, IYOG2022 Exhibition Calendar and IYOG2022 Events Calendar.

All entities with a focus on or interest in contemporary glass art can help AACG by sharing information about exhibitions, programs, events, and other IYOG2022 celebrations by emailing the details to and International Year of Glass - The American Ceramic Society. These programs will then be included on event calendars of art-related glass events throughout 2022 so all can enjoy.
