Beauty and the Unexpected

March 30, 2023 – January 21, 2024

Nationalmuseum, Stockholm, Sweden

We are thrilled to announce that Oscillating Echo Sipher (2002), an iconic example of the decades-long collaboration with the Swedish glassblowing tradition, has a new home at the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, Sweden. The piece joins the museum’s permanent collection and will be on view beginning in late March as part of their Beauty and the Unexpected exhibition. Special thanks to gallerist Helen W. Drutt English for championing this wonderful project and bringing this piece “home” to Sweden.

“When we consider for a moment the alchemy that takes place when the most basic of elements – fire, water, and sand – come together, that is when craftsmanship is elevated to fine art.” – Vittorio Calabrese, director of the New York-based Magazzino Italian Art.

Much has been written declaring that today no borders exist between the arts. Practitioners can utilize whatever media they choose to realize their vision and can call themselves whatever they wish. However, with the art vs. craft debate over (or is it?), is there a new world order? Artist Michael Glancy, Susie Silbert, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Glass, The Corning Museum of Glass, and Rosanne Somerson, President, Rhode Island School of Design, will discuss these questions in a panel moderated by Dr. Arne R. Flaten, Director, School of Art, Ball State University.

Presented by the School of Art and The Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass, Ball State University in conjunction with the SOFA CHICAGO Special Exhibit Ball State University School of Art: Embracing the Past, Making the Future
