This exhibition presents a rich selection of glass objects from the Barrick Museum’s Art Glass Collection, including objects by Tiffany, Quezal, Steuben, Loetz, and Daum Nancy. The collection was built by Ruth Wolzinger, an avid fan and collector of art glass, over the course of 30+ years. She gave the collection to UNLV in 1995 to ensure that this unique art form would be preserved, appreciated and could potentially serve as a teaching tool.

Opening Reception: July 23 (6-8 p.m.)
