Museum's Third "Summer of Glass" Brings Sculpture to Light
As far as Charles Shepard is concerned, glass sculpture is due for its big day in the museum world.
That’s why the organization he runs – the Fort Wayne Museum of Art – is holding its latest “Summer of Glass” show.
While Shepard says many museums see the medium as more of a craft than an art, he also believes it’s set to break through on the museum circuit.
But until it does, he’s happy to showcase some of the world’s best studio glass right here in Fort Wayne.
This week, WBOI’s Julia Meek invited Shepard to talk about the three exhibitions that make up the Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s “Summer of Glass 2015.”
