The National Liberty Museum hosts “Transparency,” the nation's first exhibit of studio glass works produced exclusively by artists of the LGBTQ+ community. This is a celebration of identity and freedom that will showcase the diverse subjects, methods, and styles explored by these glass artists.


NLM is hosting an Opening Reception on Friday, June 9 at 5:30 with a chance to meet the artists, view the gallery, free refreshments, and a glass art raffle. The Opening Reception is free but a $10 donation is suggested to support NLM's public programming. “Transparency” is on display from June 2 – August 6 during Museum hours of operation from 10am-5pm. It is included with Museum admission.


The exhibit takes its name both from the material from which it is created and to serve as a reminder that the freedom to live one’s truth is necessary for a liberated society. “Transparency” will feature works by over 20 glass artists including: Nancy Callan, Joseph Cavalieri, Pearl Dick, Sarah Gilbert, Kim Harty, Joshua Hershman, Eric Hess, Niki Hildebrand, Carmichael Jones, Drew Mattei, Amanda Nardone, Ronnie Phillips, Jenny Pohlman & Sabrina Knowles, Brandon Robinson, Joe Sircoulomb, Tim Tate, Wes Valdez, Jeff Zimmer, and Walter Zimmerman.


“Transparency” is a part of “NLM Celebrates Pride Month, a month-long series of highlighted exhibits and special events throughout June 2017.
