Started in 1967 by Doug Johnson, a member of Harvey Littleton's first glass class at UW-Madison, UWRF's glass program ranks as one of the oldest degree granting glass programs in the United States. Jim Engbretson then ran the program for many years until his retirement in 2009.  2012 was the 50th anniversary of the start of the modern Studio Glass movement by Harvey Littleton and Dominic Labino. This exhibit focus' primarily on the early alumni of UWRF and the far reaching impact of their careers over the past 45 years, as well as notable more recent alumni working with the material.  A reception will be held on Thursday, Feb. 14, from 5:30-8 p.m. in Gallery 101, Kleinpell Fine Arts.
