"Glass and Glamour: Steuben's Modern Moment, 1930-1960," presented by the Museum of the City of New York, is the first exhibition to explore the premier American glassmaker's mid-century accomplishments. Some 200 examples, including 170 rare and iconic crystal pieces, will be displayed along with original drawings and literature from the Great Depression to the 1960's. Highlights include Steuben's 1939 World's Fair pavilion designs, such as George Thompson's large-scale blown Galapagos bowl; engraved pieces by Isamu Noguchi, Salvador Dalí, and Georgia O'Keeffe; and functional objects, from dishes and glasses to candlesticks.
