Presentation by Katherine Larson, Curator of Ancient Glass, CMOG
Katherine (Kate) Larson and her colleagues have put together a fabulous new exhibit! Building on the mission of the Corning Museum of Glass, to “inspire people to see glass in a new light,” the Curatorial team of the Museum challenged themselves to see our rich collection in new ways. The result is an exhibition of objects from the permanent collection which tell diverse and evolving stories. They partnered with people across the region and beyond to better understand these objects and their relevance to our lives today. As Curator of Ancient Glass, Katherine is responsible for areas of the historical collection from the origins of glass until 1250 CE. She curated the exhibition Fire and Vine: The Story of Glass and Wine, currently on view in the Gather Gallery, and is the author of Ancient and Islamic Glass: Selections from the Corning Museum of Glass. Katherine holds a Ph.D. in Classical Art and Archaeology from the University of Michigan, an M.A. in Classical and Near Eastern Studies from the University of Minnesota, and a B.A. in Classical Archaeology from Macalester College.
Don’t forget we have time reserved to feed both body and soul. Besides spending free time at the Carder Gallery looking through the incredible collection of glass, there will be a cash bar and light snacks event Friday evening!
