FLUID FORMATIONS: THE LEGACY OF GLASS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, at Whatcom Museum

Dates: April 10 – October 10, 2021 

Location: Whatcom Museum, Lightcatcher Building

Celebrating a rich legacy unique to our region, Fluid Formations features the art of fifty-seven contemporary artists working in glass. The Pacific Northwest is the epicenter of glass, spurred by the establishment of Pilchuck Glass School on a remote tree farm in Stanwood, Washington in 1971. Fifty years later, the region’s glass community has expanded significantly, defined by shared knowledge, teamwork, and an experimental spirit.
