The discovery of glass as a serious artistic medium in the 1960s— dubbed the Studio Glass Movement, which originated at the Toledo Museum of Art— was monumental. Yet in its earliest decades, women faced an uphill battle in their demand for fair recognition of their contributions and work. In Fired Up:
Contemporary Glass by Women Artists, more than 50 objects showcase the women who now rank among the most innovative and celebrated glass artists.

Drawn from the Toledo Museum of Art’s renowned glass collection, with notable loans from private collectors, the works document nearly six decades of underappreciated influence, from the art that helped women forge a path in the Studio Glass Movement of the ’60s to the ingenuity of 21st-century installations. The exhibition is sponsored by O-I, Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, the Ohio Arts Council, and funds received in the memory of Dr. Edward A. and Mrs. Rita Barbour Kern.

Through March 18, Glass Pavilion Galleries 2 and 3.
Free admission.
