The show runs May2013-January 2014
Their website here.
In the area?... you should definitely go. I can not wait to see it for myself.
"This major exhibition explores glass beads and beaded objects made by various cultures, representing 3,500 years of human history. Life on a String: 35 Centuries of the Glass Bead will showcase, for the first time, many important works from the large historical glass bead collection of The Corning Museum of Glass as well as objects on loan from seven institutions."
I am very proud be part of another show running also in Corning, which is exploring contemporary glass beads and jewelery.
