On Saturday, Nov. 9 TMA will be participating in a national movement called Veterans Glassblowing Day whose mission is to provide US Veterans with a free opportunity to experience glassblowing. The intention is to expose veterans to a potentially marketable skill, create joy through artistic expression, and build community. A limited number of free hands on experiences in the glass studio will be offered to interested veterans at 1, 2 and 4 p.m. To reserve a spot, call 419-245-5771 x7448. That same day the Museum will also host “ship in a bottle” folk artist Chief Quarter Master Charles Nichols, US Navy, retired. He will be talking about his work, which will be displayed in the Glass Pavilion, and share stories from his experiences in the service between 1 and 3pm.
