Pilchuck Glass School was founded in 1971 by artist Dale Chihuly and patrons Anne Gould Hauberg and John H. Hauberg. With the didactic model of “artists teaching artists,” Pilchuck has invited the best in the world to share their knowledge and has subsequently become one of the most significant centers for glass art education. Associate Curator Sarah Kohn will explore the history of Pilchuck and the connection between the renowned school and artists in the museum’s collection.

Coffee with a Curator is a focused, theme-oriented presentation on a variety of topics related to the FIA’s permanent collection and special exhibitions. Presented by an FIA’s curators or an invited speaker, each talk allows time for questions or gallery exploration as well as coffee and tea service. The inaugural series of Coffee with a Curator explores “Nature and Its Symbols,” the relationship of art with nature, both real and imaginative.
