The AGG will host their Annual Summer Conference and IYoG 2022 celebration at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning NY. CMoG is the worlds largest space dedicated to the display of contemporary art and design in glass. Hosting a conference at Corning offers a unique opportunity to bring together glass luminaries from art, industry, research, and science to educate and celebrate our noble medium of glass. Conference workshops, lectures, demonstrations and activities will take place at the Museum and at the Hilton Hotel.

In recognition of the International Year of Glass, the AGG will host National and International Speakers covering a wide range of topics to include, History, Education, Technique, Design, New Window Projects and Glass Conservation along with special sessions on Science and Technology of glass. Our conference will feature the AGG annual James Whitney Scholarship Auction and a Retrospective Exhibit in honor of the late Mary Clerkin-Higgins. We will be offering a live-stream-virtual-component to our conference this year on Friday, July 15th. For more information about our conference, registration and lodging, please visit our website at https://www.americanglassguild.org/2022-conference.

We look forward to gathering in-person with the AGG membership, glass colleagues and community. Consider bringing your family and exploring the the Corning area with its charming downtown, restaurants, local shops, scenic places to explore, nearby wineries and family-friendly activities.
