    In 2012, more than 150 museums throughout the United States will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of America's studio-glass movement, which began in 1962 in Toledo, Ohio. Since that time, glass has emerged as a rich and diverse form of creative expression with vessels, sculptures, and everything in between being blown, cast, assembled, and even painted. The Crocker's exhibition includes all of these techniques, ranging from Marvin Lipofsky's blown sculptures from the 1960s to Dale Chihuly's elaborate Macchia Seaform Group from the 1980s, to more recently acquired sculptural works by Therman Statom and Nancy Mee.
