January 16, 7–10 p.m. The Glass Theater: Phantom
Using the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio as the stage, artists, writers, performers, and glassblowers will come together for an avant garde theatrical performance. Enjoy a magical hot-cast-glass version of Pepper’s Ghost by Jocelyne Prince; Driving Steam, an evening storm of light, sound, and steam by Julia and Robin Rogers; and an eerie musical improv between the violin of indie favorite Kishi Bashi and glass instruments played with a blowtorch by South Korean artist Bohyun Yoon.
February 20, 7–10 p.m. The Parthenon
Tonight we admire the architecture of the ancients with artist Liesl Schubel’s the Parthenon performance. This epic attempt to recreate the columns of the Parthenon out of glass is a full-blown toga party. Enjoy classic hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and live music by the band Ice Cream featuring Evan Martin on drums and Michael Libramento on organ and electric piano.
March 20, 7–10 p.m. Beth Lipman, Artist in Residence
Watch Artist in Residence Beth Lipman create a temporal still life installation with our Studio Team. This ephemeral sculpture will literally be set ablaze and accompanied by the music Jacob Vanko.
