April 13: Deco Night
For decades, glass artist and collector David Huchthausen has collected Art Deco Glass with a keen and practiced eye. The quality and depth of his collection would be difficult, if not impossible, to replicate. His collecting history begins with the first pieces acquired while working as a graduate assistant to Harvey Littleton and continues today. The FWMoA is proud to display his remarkable collection of over 120 Art Deco glass works, which includes many major studios and artists of the period (René Lalique, Steuben Glass Works, Daum Nancy, and Pierre D’Avesn) concurrent with our permanent collection of contemporary glass. Please join us in your favorite Deco attire for an evening that will feature exhibition tours led by museum curators, free admission, live music by She Shed, cash bar, and light appetizers.
The exhibition is organized by the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA. Support for this exhibition at FWMoA is by the Edward D. and Ione Auer Foundation.
Second Thursday at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art is sponsored by ProFed Credit Union.
