American Glass: Bohemia, The Great Depression, Mid Century, and Beyond

Special Collections is pleased to announce the new exhibit about American glass.

Glass has been produced in a myriad of shapes, colors, sizes, and textures across the globe. From the most practical, mundane glass in everyday use to the most exquisitely decorated fine art pieces, glass has been a part of the human experience for centuries.

The new exhibit in Special Collections features a variety of glass pieces that were donated to TU in memory of W.R. Thawley by T.R. Buell in 1960. Their collection was exhibited at the Philbrook Museum of Art for years before being returned to Special Collections. Featured pieces include Bohemian girandoles, Tiffany’s Favrile glass, Waterford, Depression glass, cream pitchers, paperweights, plates, vases, and more.


Come by to see this exhibit through the end of March, on the 5th floor of McFarlin Library, any time between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm.
