In the wake of the cancellation of the Glass Art Society (GAS) Boston conference, several local individuals and institutions have decided to collaborate to produce an alternative conference, GlassBoston.


GlassBoston will be held June 13-16, 2013.  The main venues for the conference will be Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the NOCA Glass School @ APG, both located in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  The conference will include lectures, demonstrations, tours, film series, gallery exhibitions, a non-juried show & sale, bbq dinner, and a closing party.  Pre/post-conference workshops will also be offered.


GlassBoston has been designed for emerging, mid-career and established artists and the public interested in glass.  Highlights include:


-          Lectures by glass and origami artists Erik and Martin Demaine; Professor of Materials Science Michael J. Cima; and an associate from James Carpenter Design Associates.

-          A symposium on the use of CAD and rapid prototyping tools and technologies, including artists Tavs Jorgensen and Norwood Viviano.

-          Tours of the MIT Media Lab, Center for Bits and Atoms, and the MIT Museum.

-          A one-day come-one-come-all glass show and sale, open to all attendees and the public.

-          Demonstrations by Rik and Shelley Allen, James Mongrain, George Kennard,  Pablo Soto, Eric Meek, Marc Petrovic, Hank Adams, Deborah Czeresko, Matthew Szosz, Alexander Rosenburg, Wesley Fleming, Jeremy Sinkus, Joe Peters, Sally Prasch, Wayne Strattman, and others to be announced.
