Museum of Glass Receives Minkoff Collection

The Museum of Glass (MOG) iin Tacoma, Washington,, a premier contemporary art museum dedicated to glass and glassmaking, has received a seminal collection of artwork showcasing the development of glass as a studio and contemporary art medium from the Robert M. Minkoff Foundation. With the addition of the late Robert Minkoff's personal collection of more than 400 works of art, the museum's glass holdings are now the largest in the Western United States.

A long-time MOG Trustee and the Museum's first Trustee Emeritus, Minkoff selected Museum of Glass to house his collection before passing away in September 2020. Developed through decades of patronage and philanthropy, the collection celebrates the incredible diversity of glass art and its possibilities in the field of contemporary art. Museum of Glass will celebrate this significant gift, and the endowment for its stewardship, with an installation in the Museum's Grand Hall, A Glimpse at the Robert M. Minkoff Foundation Collection, opening October 15, 2020. A major exhibition honoring Minkoff and his collection, with accompanying educational programming, will open in Spring 2022. It will be accompanied by a catalog highlighting the breadth of the collection.
