UrbanGlass Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Born 40 years ago in a basement in the NoHo neighborhood of Manhattan, UrbanGlass now operates from 647 Fulton Street, a 17,000-square-foot studio and the street-level Agnes Varis Art Center, which houses a gallery and a store, in the heart of Brooklyn’s Cultural District.  While the organization’s physical presence has evolved dramatically over the years, its mission remains the same: to foster experimentation and advance the use and critical understanding of glass as a creative medium.
On Tuesday, May 16, UrbanGlass will honor Katya and Doug Heller of Heller Gallery for their contributions to the field and a combined 25 years of service on the UrbanGlass Board.  Artist, designer and studio user Thaddeus Wolfe is the artist honoree.  The 40th Anniversary of UrbanGlass also will be celebrated with a Gala Dinner/Auction and an After Party and Studio Performance. The event raises critical funds to support artists, promote educational opportunities for students and engage the community in discourse about this incredible medium.
