Give Glen Echo Glassworks Artists the Opportunity to Join the Top Ranks in the Field

About the Project

The prestigious Glass Arts Society selected Glen Echo Glassworks artists Paul Swartwood, Mark Hill, and Phil Valencia to demonstrate their innovative glassblowing techniques at the Annual Meeting in Sweden in May 2020.

This exceptional opportunity and international exposure exemplifies the growing success of the glass arts program at Glen Echo Park.

Your contribution at any level will be matched for a limited time through the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County. Help us make our goal before matching funds run out! 

Help enable these talented emerging artists to showcase their artistry at the most prestigious event of the year, interact with experts in the glass world, and discover new insights to share with their students at the Park.
