TOLEDO - The Toledo Museum of Art will participate in national Veterans Glassblowing Day Saturday providing active-duty members and veterans of the U.S. military a free opportunity to experience glassblowing.
The program's aim is to introduce soldiers and veterans to a potentially marketable skill, to enable them to enjoy artistic expression and to build the community.
A limited number of free, hands-on experiences will be offered to U.S. military and veterans with proper identification during Art Hours at 1, 2 and 4 p.m. that day at the Glass Pavilion. For reservations call 419-245-5771, ext. 7448.
That afternoon from 1-3 p.m. in the Glass Pavilion, the Museum will host "ship in a bottle" folk artist and retired U.S. Navy Chief Quartermaster Charles Nichols. Nichols will be available to talk with the public about his work, which will be on display, and share stories from his experiences in the service.
In addition public glassblowing demonstration will be given at 3 p.m.
