The Toledo Museum's Glass Pavilion opened in 2006 and uniquely combines gallery spaces that display one of the world’s great glass collections alongside a dynamic working glass studio born from Toledo roots as the birthplace of the American Studio Glass Movement.
This residency is part of the Toledo Museum of Art's Guest Artist Pavilion Project, or GAPP. It brings in all types of artists who are willing to explore the use of glass in their work, to be inspired, without restriction, by the TMA collection, studio facilities, and staff. The program features established and emerging artists residencies, public artist’s talks and offers intensive workshops with visiting artists who can share specialized techniques with our community.
